I 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.
HMP Bure is a category C male prison built on part of the former RAF Coltishall site, 7 miles north of Norwich. The prison was constructed throughout 2009 and currently holds 650+ prisoners. HMP Bure has residential units and a full healthcare unit.
HMP Wayland is a Category C male training prison, located near the village of Griston in Norfolk. The site is built up of 13 residential units and has a full healthcare unit. HMP Wayland is 24 miles from the main city of Norwich and 15 miles from Thetford.
Care UK were recently awarded the healthcare contracts at HMP Bure and HMP Wayland and will begin delivering services on 1st April 2019; we are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP Bure and HMP Wayland, we’re looking for an Advanced Nurse Practitioner to support us and the existing team in this new venture, working across both sites.

Onsite benefits at HMP Bure and HMP Wayland include access to an onsite gym, free parking and subsidised café/restaurant.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?

Leading by example, you'll share your experience and knowledge by being involved in the educational and professional development of the nursing team through clinical supervision sessions both on the wings and formal teaching opportunities.
