About Care UK
Care UK is the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to over 30,000 offenders in over 40 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.
Care UK are proud to support our employees with continued professional development opportunities and further education subject to service needs...
What will you be doing?
As a Substance Misuse Nurse you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, whilst being a support and resource to less experienced members of staff.
You will be carrying out comprehensive assessments; reviewing individual recovery plans and arranging a full range of treatment options available to service users. You will work with individuals, on a 1-1 basis, providing advice and information and support in group work delivery and liaise with prescribers and Recovery Practitioners on clinical interventions.
You will occasionally be required to support dispensing and you must have an understanding and commitment to recovery and a person centred approach.
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.
What do we need from you?
You will be a Registered Nurse (RGN or RMN) 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.
We do ask that you have experience of working with Substance Misuse as well as working autonomously.
Please note that offers of employment are subject to Care UK Terms & Conditions and receipt of satisfactory references, enhanced DBS check and prison vetting.
