Looking for a new challenge?
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?
Then look no further… We’re looking for an innovative Paramedic who thrives on a challenge to provide high-quality emergency care and minor injury treatment to patients with both primary care and acute care needs in a prison setting - performing procedures such as suturing, IV access, haemorrhage control, wound care and cardiac & CVA intervention.
You’ll be playing an active part in the assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the patient's care. Working as part of a team of primary care nurses within HMP YOI Exeter you’ll deliver care to patients both within the healthcare centre and on the Wings/House blocks.
Practice Plus Group is the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to over 22,000 offenders in over 40 prisons 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 that 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.
HMP YOI Exeter is an adult/young offenders institution accepting males ages 18 and over; with an operational capacity of 550+. It accepts all adult and young offenders committed to prison by the courts from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset & West Somerset.
