Break into Prison Healthcare!

Are you looking to work for a company that offers support and development opportunities? If so, then this could be the role for you!

Care UK is looking for Registered Nurses to join our multi-disciplined team at HMP Foston Hall.

HMP Foston Hall is a Closed Female prison holding a mixture of remand, unsentenced, short and long term sentenced young adults and adult prisoners located in Foston, Derbyshire

About the Job:

As a Staff Nurse you will be an integral part of the healthcare team and will be involved in everything from clinical triage to the evaluation of patient care and standards. You’ll carry out – and potentially develop – nurse led clinics, reviewing patient’s histories, undertaking relevant examinations and tests, organising any necessary treatment and referring patients to other healthcare professionals when you need to. In return, we will offer you opportunities to develop your career and ensure that you are supported throughout.
You will also be working as part of a larger multi-disciplinary team, alongside the substance misuse and mental health teams.

Are you new to prison healthcare? Do not worry... you will be supported and mentored throughout your first 6 months with Care UK by experienced teams of highly skilled nurses and practitioners as well as management to ensure that you are getting the best out of the job.

We are now able to offer a rotational post working between HMP Foston Hall and HMP Dovegate which gives you the opportunity to work across a female and male establishment. Please speak with us and let us know if this would interest you!

About You

You will be a Registered Nurse (RGN) looking to develop your current skills in a unique and ever changing environment. You will have a passion for learning and development, as well as having the initiative to bring new ideas and opinions on how to improve the healthcare services.

Prison Healthcare experience is not essential although we do ask that you have experience within a primary care setting.

About Care UK

Care UK is the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to over 25,000 offenders in over 35 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. 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.
