Make a difference from day one!

Prisons are challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work. If you are a Healthcare Assistant and want a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, then this is it!

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. We are the market leader, providing care to over 30,000 patients in over 40 prisons across the country.

Our core values are; everyone makes a difference, patients are at the heart of everything we do and together we make things better. If you share these values and have transferable skills we want to meet you!

What can we offer you?

As a Healthcare Assistant you’ll be an integral part of the healthcare team by bringing your top notch skills and passion for care. With plenty of proven experience, you could be involved in anything from health promotion clinics and observations, the provision of social/personal care; to supporting the nursing and pharmacy teams in primary care.

There are great opportunities for training and development and the opportunity to work with interesting patients and learn new skills.

Flexible and adaptable? That's great!
We're looking for someone just like you to be part of our team.

This is a full-time role working 37.5 hours a week across Warren Hill and Hollesley Bay prisons. The salary for this role is up to £19,000 - dependent on experience.
