I help to make a difference!

Have you ever dreamed of breaking the mould with a different kind of role?

Ever thought about working in a prison?

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.

As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.

Practice Plus Group is the Health in Justice market leader – 4 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2020 we’re providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.

We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.

Interested in clinical development?

We could give you the opportunity to develop in to a specialist role of your interest and benefit to the service i.e. ANP, BBV, sexual health, plastering, ILS/ALS (intermediate life support and advanced life support), health promotion, phlebotomy, vaccinations, suturing, wound care, RCGP, and long term condition courses.

So, what do we need from you so that you can do the role?

As a Pharmacy Checker, you will be responsible for second checking of all controlled drugs under the direct supervision of the Pharmacy Technician. The role will involve making accurate entries into controlled drugs registers. This may in future rotate to other areas within the Pharmacy service.

You’ll be required to support and provide a timely and efficient pharmaceutical service to the prison wings. As an integral member of the Pharmacy Team, you’ll contribute to the development of and support implementation of medicine management strategy and associated services and projects

You may be required to take on a role of working across multiple Pharmacy Services if and when required.

It goes without saying that you’ll be highly organised, have excellent attention to detail and have good communication skills – both verbal and written. Experience of working within a multi-disciplinary team would be beneficial, as is experience within a Pharmacy service.

In return for your hard work you will…
