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 - 4 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2020 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.

Interested in clinical development?

We could give you the opportunity to develop in to a specialist role of your interest and benefit to the service i.e. ANP, BBV, sexual health, plastering, ILS/ALS (intermediate life support and advanced life support), health promotion, phlebotomy, vaccinations, suturing, wound care, RCGP, and long term condition courses.

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

You will be a qualified registered Nurse (RGN) 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.

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!

You will be there to ensure that patients are safe during their first night in prison by undertaking comprehensive assessments of their physical, mental, substance misuse and social care needs. You will also be involved in the discharge of those patients back into their communities- making sure they take home appropriate medication, informed of appointments.

You must be able to carry out comprehensive assessments and refer patients to the appropriate care pathways.

You will also be supporting new starters and helping their orientation, allocating duties to Healthcare Assistants and be able to prioritise patient care and manage your own workload.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an annual salary of up to £39,000 per annum- depending on experience. You'll also get a number of benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time) plus CPD and re-validation support.

Other benefits include cycle to work scheme plus training and clinical development opportunities.

Next steps

If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by the Internal Recruiter for this role.

The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn we will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Doncaster if the hiring managers feel that you are suitable for the job.

This is a full-time role working 37.5 hours per week.
