Lead General Practitioner - HMP Brixton


Where making a difference changes lives

Secure environments 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 in an environment that never stands still, then this could be the opportunity for you.

Prison Medicine is a very rewarding career, which offers a more varied day to day workload, with greater opportunities for flexible working and professional development, than community General Practice. You will have a full induction at HMP Brixton and ongoing support from the Regional Medical Lead for the London region.

You will provide primary care to patients within GP clinics - clinically assessing, diagnosing and treating patients, similar to that in the community but with the added benefit of being part of a fully integrated Healthcare department. There is a multidisciplinary team made up on mental health, substance misuse, primary care and pharmacy professionals; you will provide a highly specialist resource of knowledge and skills to the healthcare team in the prison. There will be an active involvement in clinical governance and effectiveness activities, as we strive to give the best possible care to our patients.
