Looking for a job opportunity within prison healthcare?
If you looking for a new and rewarding role and want to develop your management skills in an environment where no two days are the same then this could be the new job for you!
We offer a salary of up to £48,500 per annum depending on experience, plus other benefits including 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holiday days, as well as access to bank hours, CPD and re-validation.
HMP Wormwood Scrubs is a category B men's prison, located within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, in West London.
About the Job..
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. It’s this variety that keeps things fresh and stimulating. Every day will bring new challenges and new experiences. But at the same time, you’ll have all the support you need to deliver the best care possible.
The role will be an experience like no other, requiring a diverse and mixed nursing skills and background. One minute you could be delivering a nurse led clinic and the next you are attending an emergency response.
You will be expected to work alongside the Deputy Head of Healthcare in the development and delivery of high quality responsive services to service users who require access to health services within HMP Wormwood Scrubs ensuring compliance with statutory and mandatory requirements.
You will be a qualified Registered General Nurse with a real passion for developing your clinical skills in an environment that is ever changing. You’ll have a flexible approach working within a team that encourage new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service. Management experience is a necessary requirement for the role.
If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!
