About The Role

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 2021 we're providing healthcare services in over 45 prisons across the country.

HMP YOI Moorland is a category C men's prison and Young Offenders Institution based in Hatfield South Yorkshire. The site offer a range of healthcare services comprising of a Physical Health team, Mental Health Team, Pharmacy Team and Substance Misuse Team 

The site are able to offer family friendly flexible hours Monday to Sunday with various hours, services usually run between 7.30am and 7.30pm. HMP YOI Moorland has a welcoming and supportive team who are able to offer excellent training opportunities for career development. 

The site is easily accessible from the M62, M18 and M180, and all staff are offered free onsite parking.
