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.

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.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an hourly rate of up to £16.38 depending on experience.

Other benefits include cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers plus training and clinical development opportunities.

What do we need from you so you can do the job?

We are looking for a registered RNLD to join our healthcare team working at HMP Highpoint. This is a new role we are driving within our service to meet the needs of our patients with learning disability across the sites.

We are looking for a professional, responsible nurse who has experience in assessing patients, supporting diagnosis for new patients and helping developing the pathway for patients within our care. Our ideal candidate will have a positive attitude and strive to deliver an excellent level of care.
