About Us

HMP Guys is an adult male category C prison holding life-sentenced and indeterminate sentenced public protection prisoners (IPPs) as well as those undertaking the integrated substance misuse services.
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.

Practice Plus Group are Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country.

At Practice Plus Group we actively promote diversity and equal opportunities and we are committed to this in both the running of our prison healthcare service and how we recruit our staff. We actively encourage applications from everyone with the essential requirements of the job, regardless of any protected characteristics.
