About The Role

We’re looking for an established Paramedic who thrives on a challenge, to provide high-quality emergency care and minor injury treatment to patients in both primary care and acute care needs in a prison setting. This role involves performing procedures such as suturing, IV access, hemorrhage control, wound care and cardiac & CVA intervention.

You’ll be playing an active part in the assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the patient's care, working to avoid hospitalisation in patient treatment. You'll work as part of a team of primary care nurses, delivering care to avoid hospitalisation for patients, both within the healthcare centre and on the Wings/ blocks. As part of this role, you'll have regular opportunities to get involved in working with nurse-led clinics, dealing with patients from the older generation, and long term conditions management.

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.
 
If you would like to bring your skills to an organisation dedicated to making a difference to people’s lives on a daily basis then we may have the role for you! 

About Us

At Practice Plus Group we can offer you excellent work-life balance, working core hours of 37.5 hours, with some weekend work.

We’re the UK’s leading independent provider of healthcare services in prisons and youth offender establishments.

We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history. That’s why we’re proud to deliver quality healthcare in some of the most challenging environments; care that is equal to what you receive in the community. We’re passionate about making a difference in the lives of prisoners by improving their health, securing their well-being, and helping to reduce re-offending behaviour.

We deliver round-the-clock healthcare to more than 40,000 patients at over 45 prisons of all categories. Prisons are a community like any other and we offer all of the health services any community needs in one place and with a single team. These range from reception health checks on arrival and regular GP services, to help with substance misuse, mental health, chronic or long-term conditions, podiatry, physiotherapy, and optometry.
