Locum Recruitment for HM Prisons

The HM Prisons Desk now supplies more than 30 prisons across the UK with Locum G.P's. We have experience in running the entire clinical staffing of major Prisons, including Out of Hours services, as well as providing interim locum cover.

Our bank of doctors includes specialists qualified to RCGP Part 1 and 2 who are able to provide assistance in both General and IDTS clinics. Our clinicians understand the requirements of specialist prescribing using restricted formulary. For difficult situations where long-standing prescribing problems have arisen, we are able to assemble a specialist GP team that has a proven track record and has been commended for its assistance in significantly reducing and eradicating these problems.

Those new to secure medicine are often wary of Prison work.  With the support of the HM Prison service, Med-Co has produced a comprehensive video to introduce GPs to the field of secure medicine and to help them understand both the rigors and rewards of this environment.  


At the forefront of innovation and development Med-Co also has practical experience in the introduction and use of Telemedicine.  This enables Prisons to reduce waiting times and lower the cost of care whilst improving patient experience and minimising security risks associated with inappropriate send-outs.
