Responsible To

Primary Care Team Leader

About the role:

As a Staff Nurse within primary care, you can expect to be involved in everything from clinical triage to the evaluation and development of patient care and standards. You’ll carry out – and potentially develop – nurse-led clinics, reviewing patient histories, undertaking relevant examinations and tests, organising any necessary treatment and referring patients to other healthcare professionals when you need to. Across everything you do, you’ll maintain accurate records and provide the kind of helpful, empathetic support that will make every patient feel at ease.

We are a small team who work closely with visiting contractors eg podiatry, optician, physio and dentist and also with the specialist nurses in local hospitals

You will be offered excellent training and development opportunities both in house and regionally and networking with the other healthcare centres in our region

About you:

As a Staff Nurse (RGN or RNM) with valid NMC registration, you’ll bring a good knowledge of clinical governance and a real passion for taking your skills even further.

It goes without saying that you’ll have a solid understanding of health and safety, along with exemplary record keeping skills. Self-motivated and able to work autonomously, you’ll show plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations.

Beyond that, you should have a flexible approach and the ability to achieve changing priorities by managing your own time.

About Care UK:

Care UK is the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to over 25,000 offenders in 41 prisons 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.
