Break into prison healthcare!

We have exciting Staff Nurse Opportunities to work within the Inpatient Healthcare Unit (IHU) and Primary Healthcare Centres.

The IHU provides care to prisoners with both mental and physical health problems, minor surgery, medical, rehabilitation/post operative care and palliative care. The Unit also provides a safe environment for the stabilisation and detoxification of prisoners with substance misuse problems.

Our two sites based Primary Healthcare Centres provide a comprehensive primary care service, GP appointments, chronic disease nurse led clinics, screening programmes and health promotion work. An emergency response service to prison wings is also provided

The work is varied and the post holders will be expected to work flexibly in line with service need. There will be rotation across both the primary care clinics and the inpatient unit as appropriate.

We invite applications from those wishing to work full or part time – and the post within IHU will require an element of rotation from days to nights.

We also welcome applications from newly qualified nurses seeking that important first post. We can offer the full range of preceptorship in a clinical environment where you can expect to see and work with a wider range of health issues than you would experience in most other areas of the NHS.

If you are looking for a challenging work environment and the opportunity to be at the forefront of developments in prison healthcare, then do please get in touch.
