Break into prison healthcare!

Are you looking for a new or additional challenge, working in an environment where no two days are the same?

Patient care is at the centre of what we do and we are looking for an enthusiastic, hard working and phlebotomist who wants to make a difference to our patient’s lives.

Make a difference from day one!

Prisons are challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work. If you are looking for an additional role to work alongside your other commitments, whilst working in an environment where no shift is ever the same, then this is it!

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. We are the market leader, providing care to over 30,000 patients in over 40 prisons across the country.

Our core values are; everyone makes a difference, patients are at the heart of everything we do and together we make things better. If you share these values and have transferable skills we want to meet you!

What do we need from you so you can do the job?

As a Phlebotomist you'll work as part of the healthcare team to collect blood samples from patients by venepuncture. Collecting samples accurately, labelling correctly and clearly and ensuring prompt delivery of samples is paramount. Working in accordance with pathology standard operating procedures and injection control policies, you'll be a competent Phlebotomist with proven recent experience of working face to face with patients. With knowledge of infection control procedures, you'll be able to work independently, whilst being supported by the wider healthcare team.
