I help treat more than just symptoms!
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 2018 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.
In return for your hard work you will...
Receive an annual salary of £37,000 - £45,000 FTE - dependent 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.
Other benefits include cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers plus training and clinical development opportunities.
Onsite benefits at HMP Brixton include access to an onsite gym, free parking and subsidised mess/canteen. Bad Boy' Bakery and The Clink restaurant are also found on site.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
As a Registered Mental Health Nurse you’ll be an integral part of the healthcare team by bringing your top notch clinical skills and passion for care to manage, lead and co-ordinate the Health and Wellbeing model at HMP Brixton.
With plenty of mental health experience, you'll utilise your skills and knowledge to co-ordinate each of the service providers to develop a specialised programme of care, or care packages on site that will address the patient’s presenting vulnerabilities. Leading by example you'll ensure that all providers devise a timetable of interventions and allocate adequate resources to deliver these interventions.
One of our nurses at HMP Huntercombe says “The bars and the doors are irrelevant, it’s about maintaining those professional boundaries like you would in any post you are working in within healthcare.”
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.
