About The Role

Make a difference from day one at HMP Five Wells!

Are you a paramedic 
looking for your next career move and further development?

Do you want to be part of healthcare team where every day is different?

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.

HMP Five Wells is a new establishment built in 2020 that will begin receiving patients from January 2022. It is a Category C resettlement men’s prison which will have an operational capacity of 1,680 by November 2022.  HMP Five Wells is based in Wellingborough in Northamptonshire. It is approximately 30 minutes from Bedford, 20 minutes from Northampton and 35 minutes north of Milton Keynes by car.

Practice Plus Group were recently awarded the healthcare contract at HMP Five Wells and will begin delivering services in January 2022. We are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/well being factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.

In return for your hard work you will...


We want our team members to feel motivated and rewarded. So we offer a salary of £37595 per annum, with 25 days annual leave, rising to 28 days with service, plus 8 public bank holidays and opportunity to join our pension scheme.  We also offer other benefits including free uniform, CPD and study days, great learning and development opportunities, cycle to work scheme, lots of shopping discounts (and we are recognised by Blue Light) and free tea and coffee!

What will you be doing?

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of our Healthcare team from the very beginning. Whatever your clinical interests and experience, a role in HMP Five Wells will enable you to use and develop your skills and provide opportunities to expand your scope of clinical practice.

In order to meet the needs of patients in this new prison Practice Plus Group has developed an exciting new integrated approach to the provision of care. Teams will work together at each stage of the patient journey, supporting them as they arrive in HMP Five Wells (Early Days in Custody Team), delivering the care they need, promoting good health and supporting resettlement (Planned Care Team) and responding to urgent and emergency needs (Unscheduled Care Team).

Regardless of what team you’ll work with, you’ll be aiming to deliver a community equivalent service for our patients.  This could include reception screening, running nurse led clinics, caring for the diverse patient group on the wings, and working with other healthcare professionals within your team ensuring that a multi-disciplinary approach is used to care for what can often be a complex patient group.

 

As a team member, you will demonstrate knowledge, skills and understanding of health issues and treatment options to provide primary care to patients within the prison, preventing transfer to outside hospital where possible.

 


About You

With the ability to think on your feet and a flexible attitude, you’ll be a qualified paramedic with current HCPC registration. Capable of demonstrating initiative, you’ll have proven post-registration experience in any of these following clinical areas: Accident & Emergency, Primary Care environments, Minor Injuries / Illness Units.
 

 

This is a part time role working 24 hours per week.
