I help to make a difference..

Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?

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.

HMP Bure is a category C male prison built on part of the former RAF Coltishall site, 7 miles north of Norwich. The prison was constructed throughout 2009 and currently holds 650+ prisoners. HMP Bure has residential units and a full healthcare unit.

Care UK were recently awarded the healthcare contract at HMP Bure and will begin delivering services on 1st April 2019; we are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
