About Us

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 in an environment that never stands still, 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; providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons to over 40,000 patients 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.
