About The Role

Are you a Podiatrist looking for a new or additional role with career development opportunities?  Have you ever thought about working within a prison environment, helping to rehabilitate and support offenders to live purposeful lives as a member of the community?

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, then this is the place to be!

To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP The Mount, we are looking for a Podiatrist to join our team, working 8 hours a month (either 1 day a month or 2 x 4 hours sessions).  There is no on-call or weekend work to allow for a strong work life balance!

You will be part of a forward thinking, innovative health care team, including GPs, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and mental health professionals, delivering high quality, best practice treatment. You will also form part of the wider MSK Health in Justice Team comprising of physiotherapists and podiatrists working in 33 prisons across the country.  You will be closely supported and mentored by our Team Lead Podiatrist, and this combined with our well-developed appraisal system, in-service training and funding for external clinical courses, you will be provided with an excellent supportive learning environment.

 

 

About You

HMP The Mount is a Category C adult male prison, located on the outskirts of Bovingdon Village, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire

This role requires the advanced assessment and treatment of patients within the offender healthcare setting who may have complex and/or chronic presentation.   You will need to determine clinical diagnosis and clinical treatment, and maintain records as an autonomous practitioner.  

With this in mind, you will be HCPC registered with post registration experience assessing and treating a range of conditions including diabetic patients, wound management, MSK pathologies and nail surgery. You will also be self-motivated with excellent communication and organisational skills.

About Us

If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by the Internal Recruiter for this role. The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn arrange an interview for you to attend if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.

Or alternatively, if you would like an informal discussion about the role, please contact Sarah Melder on [email protected]
