HMP Dovegate is a category B prison with over 1060 male adult prisoners over the age of 21 all serving a range of sentences including trial, remand, awaiting sentence and convicted men serving over four years to life. HMP Dovegate is a challenging yet rewarding environment. The Advanced Nurse Practitioner will assist in the provision of a quality nurse led service to patients attending the healthcare department. This could involve running a general nursing clinic, triaging patients requiring emergency treatment or care or working with patients that have substance misuse problems. The role requires you to function autonomously and within your sphere of competency, whilst being a support and resource to less experienced members of staff. You must be able to assess patients, plan their care, administer treatment and discharge them or refer them as appropriate to other healthcare professionals/external agencies. No day is the same; we are looking for an experienced ANP to work at HMP Dovegate on the bank. If you are looking for a challenging environment to work alongside your existing commitments we would be really keen to hear from you.
