Facilities and hospitality team

Catering team

Our dedicated catering teams are responsible for providing an efficient, high quality dedicated food and beverage service across our hospitals and surgical centres.  Roles we recruit into include:

  • Chefs
  • Catering assistants

People joining our team have experience of working in a similar environment and a Basic Food Hygiene certificate (or willingness to work towards it).

Housekeeping team

As a Housekeeper in one of our teams at a Practice Plus Group Hospital or surgical centre you’ll be responsible for providing a high standard of cleaning in both clinical and non-clinical areas, operating in compliance with corporate and local policies and procedures.

We look for people with experience and knowledge of health and safety and a commitment to customer care, first class service provision and belief in teamwork.

Sterile Services team

Sterile Services is a vital, but little known department within the hospital setting as it processes all used instrumentation, which involves the receipt of contaminated instruments, the preparation of the instruments for washing (which can be automated and manual), the checking, assembling and finally the sterilising of the instruments.

The sterile service department has to adhere to many standards and is constantly audited to ensure compliance. Therefore the technician that work in sterile services have to be diligent in all that they do and the training programme will take anything from eight to twelve months before the technician is deemed proficient. However, the role of a technician is always about constantly learning as new operating methods and associated equipment forms part of healthcare on a regular basis.

There are opportunities for advancement in sterile services departments from technician, to team leader, then deputy manager to manager where a university degree in decontamination can be taken.

Porters

Our Porters undertake a range of delegated portering duties, including unloading, delivery of stock and any other general tasks required across our Prison Healthcare sites and some of our Hospitals.

We look for individuals who are keen to take on roles with varied duties, supporting the delivery of excellent health care to prisoners and patients. You will need to have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and demonstrate the ability to work as a team member.
