General Practitioner - Thames Valley Prison Cluster
Make a difference from day one!
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.
We are looking for General Practitioners to work regionally across HMP Huntercombe, HMP Aylesbury and HMP Grendon and Springhill. This is a great role for someone who is looking to work part-time as we are looking for 6 sessions per week however, we would welcome applicants who are looking for less than 6 sessions per week.
You will work in a truly integrated team with the chance to see individual care through from start to finish. You will have support from our wider healthcare team and a chance to develop your clinical and medical skills into a field you would like to develop in (this could include substance misuse, mental health, diabetes to name a few). Committed to CPD for our General Practitioners we also offer regional and national care development opportunities as well as access to our bespoke Learning Management system.
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. We adopt the premise no single health/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
What would you be doing in this position?
Working across different sites within our Thames Valley region, you will have the opportunity to work with various different patients providing clinical assessment and diagnosis to patient’s requirements and make timely decisions regarding future management. You will also provide a highly specialist resource to other healthcare staff, patients and carers and have active involvement in clinical governance/effectiveness activities.
It doesn’t end there; you will have a chance to become actively involved in audit, teaching and training (management of substance misuse and/or blood borne viruses) as well as helping us to adapt the service to the ever-changing needs of the patients.
Working at Practice Plus Group
You will receive an annual salary of £110,000 per annum FTE (pro rata for part time applicants).
You'll also get a number of benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, indemnity support, CPD and study days per year, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays (pro-rata) as well as onsite benefits such as an onsite gym which you can use, free parking and subsidised café/restaurant.
If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by one of our recruitment team who will then submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn we will arrange an interview for you to attend if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
