Make a difference from day one

Are you a Physiotherapist looking for a new or additional role with career development opportunities?

Have you ever thought about working within a prison environment, helping to rehabilitate and support offenders to live decent and purposeful lives as a member of the community?

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.

Care UK were recently awarded the healthcare contract at HMP Lewes and HMP Ford and will begin delivering services on 1st April 2020; 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/well being factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.

To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP Lewes and HMP Ford, we’re looking for a Physiotherapist to support us and the existing teams in this new venture, to work across both sites.

This role requires the advanced assessment and treatment of patients within the offender healthcare setting who may have complex and/or chronic presentation, and to determine clinical diagnosis and clinical treatment indicated, and to maintain records as an autonomous practitioner.

The requirements

As a minimum we are looking for you to:

•  Be Physiotherapy BSc (Hons) degree level qualified (or equivalent)
•  Have current HCPC registration
