Can you help to make a difference!

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.

To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP Isle of Wight, we’re looking for Pharmacy Technician's to come and join our team.

HMP Isle of Wight is a Cat B Men's Prison, which was formed by the clustering of three former establishments HMP Parkhurst, HMP Albany and HMP Camp Hill.
