I help to make a difference!
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.
Practice Plus Group is 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 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 Portland is based on the Isle of Portland off the coast of Weymouth. It is approximately 7 miles from the centre of Weymouth. The prison is a category C adult /young offender’s prison and houses up to 530 prisoners, all with varying sentence lengths.
