I help to make a difference!
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.
Looking for something different?
We're looking for a Substance Misuse Nurse to support our multi-disciplinary healthcare team at HMP Bullingdon. This will mean working inside the prison within healthcare and on the prison wings. HMP Bullingdon operates as a local Prison holding both remanded and sentenced prisoners. HMP Bullingdon also accommodates young adults between the ages of 18-21.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
You will be a registered RGN or RMN. Ideally you will have RCGP1 and 2 in Substance Misuse.

Experience of working with medical software and the ability to work within a harm reduction model.

If you have experience of working within a prison/secure setting then great.
Most importantly its about the ability to treat service users with respect and dignity at all times and being able to adopt a sensitive approach which will be looking at the whole needs of the person.

The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Silvie will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Bullingdon if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
The work is interesting and varied and is an opportunity to make a difference to peoples’ lives, enabling them to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing.
