Job Description

Looking for an exciting job opportunity within prison healthcare?

Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?

Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.

As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.

Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2019 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.

We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.
Interested in clinical development?

We could give you the opportunity to develop in to a specialist role of your interest and benefit to the service i.e. ANP, BBV, sexual health, plastering, ILS/ALS (intermediate life support and advanced life support), health promotion, phlebotomy, vaccinations, suturing, wound care, RCGP, and long term condition courses.

About the Job

You will be required to lead innovative nursing practice in the management of long term conditions for a specific caseload of patients. This includes the assessment of need, delivery and evaluation of care interventions and management plans in line with best practice standards.

You will also be required to proactively manage frequent and high demand users of health services using long term condition strategies in line with the Department of Health standards for the management of long term conditions as well as providing professional support and guidance for the nursing team and ensure resources available are utilised effectively for the day to day management of patients with long term conditions. The post holder is an integral part of the Service and contributes to the assessment of need for the local population.

What we need from you?

As a Long Term Conditions Nurse you’ll be an integral part of the healthcare team by bringing your top notch clinical skills and passion for care. You will have highly developed specialist knowledge in long term conditions and be able to demonstrate a high level of clinical assessment skills. You will also need to undertake the role of Suptervisor/Mentor, participating in and supporting others to deliver clinical practice.

You will also require a non-medical prescribing qualification or have the willingness to undertake.

If you have a passion for bringing new ideas to the table then we’re here to listen on how we can improve and continue to develop our healthcare service within the prison environment.

Salary and Benefits

Receive an annual salary of up to £35,000 depending on experience. You'll also get a number of benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays plus CPD and re-validation support.
