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, seeing past the environment or their history.

Care UK is the Health in Justice Market leader and ambitious growing from providing healthcare in 12 prisons to over 40 prisons across the country.

We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well a range of other employee benefits.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an annual salary of up to £42,000 depending on experience. You’ll 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.

Advantages of working at HMP The Verne include access to an onsite gym and free parking. Other benefits include cycle to work scheme, training and clinical development opportunities.

What are we looking for in you?

As a Registered Nurse you’ll be an integral part of the senior team at HMP The Verne, bringing your well-developed clinical skills, passion for care and leadership skills. With plenty of primary care experience, you will be leading from the front, keeping your skills sharp by delivering some clinics directly and developing knowledge with the team to continually improve the care for men at HMP The Verne.

This is a leadership role and with your team leaders you will model a culture of compassion, care, courage, commitment, communication and competence. The role will include providing challenge, support and mentorship at point of delivery, drawing the best from our staff and improving the quality of care received by men at HMP The Verne.

As the Clinical Lead at HMP The Verne you will be innovative, bringing fresh ideas and solutions to the challenges of proving healthcare in a prison that is also changing its focus to a remand and resettlement prison; we will see men at beginning and end of their time in prisons, both are times of transition in the community and require a co-ordinated approach to continuity of care with other services.
