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, then this is the place to be.

HMP Five Wells is a new establishment which began 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.

We are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to prisoners 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

We are passionate about what we do and our core values are:

  • We treat patients and each other as we would like to be treated
  • We act with integrity
  • We embrace diversity
  • We strive to do things better together.

If this resonates with you then we’d like to hear from you!

Healthcare operates 7 days a week therefore you will be required to work weekends.

Please note that offers of employment are subject to Practice Plus Group Terms & Conditions and receipt of satisfactory references, an enhanced DBS check and prison vetting.

At Practice Plus Group we actively promote diversity and equal opportunities and we are committed to this in both the running of our prison healthcare service and how we recruit our staff. We actively encourage applications from everyone with the essential requirements of the job, regardless of any protected characteristics.
