I treat more than just symptoms

HMYOI Werrington is a small young offenders establishment taking both sentenced and remands.

Care UK is 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/well being factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.

We’ll utilise the well being model to put patient care and safety at the heart of everything we do through assessing prisoners across 5 domains of; physical and mental well being, substance misuse, relationships and resettlement. The patient and clinician complete a well being wheel assessment to set goals and outcomes in partnership. The patient will complete the assessment and any needs identified will be met by our fully integrated service delivery team.

What will you be doing?

As a member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team, the General Practitioner will provide clinical assessment and diagnosis to patient’s requirements and make timely decisions regarding future management. You will also provide a highly specialist resource to other healthcare staff, patients and carers and have active involvement in clinical governance/effectiveness activities.

It doesn’t end there; you will have a chance to become actively involved in audit, teaching and training (management of substance misuse and/or blood borne viruses) as well as helping us to adapt the service to the ever-changing needs of the patients.

What will you get in return for your hard work?

We offer a salary up to £96,900 per annum (pro rata) plus reimbursement of MDU/MPS subscription. Furthermore should you wish there are plenty of opportunities for extra shifts and overtime.

Further Information

This position is 7.5 hours per week over 3 days working 2 x 3hr sessions and 1 x 1.5 hour session, and the salary is up to £96,900 per annum (DOE) pro rata.
