I help to make a change every day

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding nursing role and want to develop your clinical skills in an environment where no two days are the same then this could be the new job for you!

Care UK are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country.

What will you be doing?

Nursing in prison is never dull or predictable. On any given day the skills you use may be similar to those you need working in health promotion or A&E, alternatively you may be supporting people to manage their mental health or substance misuse.
