Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?
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.
Foston Hall is a closed female prison holding up to 347 women who range from remand to long term. Healthcare does not currently have inpatient beds but does have three safer custody rooms. The prison is operated by Her Majesty’s Prison Service.
Practice Plus Group are Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country.
