I treat more than just symptoms
Are you looking for a new challenge in a role where two days are never the same?
Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.
As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.
Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2018 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.
We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams and opportunities to come on board as a permanent employee if this is something you are interested in.

In return for your hard work you will..
Receive an hourly rate of £30 and training/clinical development opportunities.
