About Us

Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work. If you are looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, then this is it.

From October 2022, we will be the recognised provider of 52 different prisons, young offenders and immigration removal centres. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history. The prison population is one of the most vulnerable and challenged patient groups in society and the delivery of their health care is conducted within often demanding environments.

HMP Eastwood Park is based 17 miles north of Bristol, 20 miles south of Gloucester, 30 miles west from Cirencester and 30 miles east from Newport in South Wales with good transport links via the M5 and the A38 and ample free staff parking.
