About The Role
Make a difference from day one!
We are looking for a General Practitioner to work as part of a friendly health care team providing care for 750 male prisoners across 2 sites which are closely linked geographically in the picturesque surroundings of rural coastal Suffolk. Your time would be split equally across both HMPs Hollesley Bay and Warren Hill, so this is a fantastic opportunity to broaden your portfolio and take the next step in your clinical career!
We can offer you a manageable workload with 15-minute appointments to enable you to give holistic care, and your working day will be 8-4 Monday to Friday. For the right candidates we can be flexible in order to achieve the right work-life balance. There are opportunities for remote working and paid CPD time as well as 25 days of paid annual leave, plus bank holidays!
We offer an annual salary of up to £125, 400 per annum (pro rata for part time applications) plus payment of MDU/MPS subscription and CPD days. This is a full time role but we are also happy to consider part time or applicants on a sessional basis.
We have a wide range of company benefits also, including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave rising to 28 days with service plus 8 public bank holidays (pro rata for part time applications), access to shopping discounts and the NHS blue light card, financial assistance when you need it, access to discounted memberships such as Costco and a cycle to work scheme.
Want to know more about our sites?
HMP Hollesley Bay is a Category D prison site with a maximum capacity of 450 men who men go out to work for local businesses, as well as working inside the prison to create a community. Category D is an open prison, with men at the end of their sentences, so there is a strong sense of rehabilitation and reintegration into normal life beyond prison.
HMP Warren Hill is a category C closed prison that is entirely dedicated to delivering a range of services in specialist environments to support long term or complex prisoners towards progression into open conditions or for release into the community. HMP Warren Hill has two units dedicated to a Therapeutic Community and Psychologically Informed Planned Environment. HMP Warren Hill’s collective capacity is approx. 250.
Visits to the establishments for an informal look around are available. Should you wish to discuss the post further, please contact Dr Iain Brew, Deputy National Medical Lead for Practice Plus Group on email@example.com
