Practice Plus Group is a specialist provider of NHS services into prison healthcare across over 45 different prisons, young offenders and immigration removal centres.

HMP Bullingdon is a category B local remand prison with a resettlement function. We have high numbers of men moving in and out of Reception from courts and from other prisons. The men within the prison have a wide range of healthcare requirements and needs. Ranging from emergency, acute problems to maintenance and management of long term chronic health issues. This can and often does include mental health and substance misuse. There is a focus on health promotion, screening and vaccinations.

  • we treat patients and each other as we would like to be treated,
  • we act with integrity
