Dr Saeed Chaudhary
I am involved with secure environments across multiple sites as a GP. I am the Co-Director of DRPA Secure which provides GP sessions with in Prison and Immigration Centre’s. I qualified in 2011 as a GP and had extensive experience working in General practice including GP surgeries, OOH and Care homes before embarking on my current role with in secure environments.

Secure environments provide a rich learning experience for any GP wanting to further their skill set. Especially the prison population which supports a higher health care need including substance misuse, palliative care, pain management and mental health. I am currently working a s a clinical lead at HMP Littlehey whilst offering Support to HMP Whitemoor, HMP Peterborough, HMP Feltham, Gatwick and Yarl’s Wood Immigration Centre.

I am a GP in central Peterborough at Boroughbury Medical Centre. I currently specialise in working with the homeless population and also specifically sex working women, running specialist clinics and outreach.
I work closely with the drug and alcohol teams, housing department and voluntary projects in Peterborough. Prior to this role I have also worked as a Forensic Medical Examiner looking after those in police custody and sexual assault victims. I was also previously a GP at HMP Peterborough. I get huge job satisfaction from working with vulnerable and hard to reach groups and am constantly challenged to do this better and improve the care we can offer.
