I treat more than just symptoms

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 - 3 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.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an annual salary of up to £33,000 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 plus CPD and re-validation support.

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

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

We are looking for a registered RNLD to join our healthcare team working at HMP Wayland. This is a new role we are driving within our service to meet the needs of our patients with learning disability across the sites.

We are looking for a professional, responsible nurse who has experience in assessing patients, supporting diagnosis for new patients and helping developing the pathway for patients within our care. Our ideal candidate will have a positive attitude and strive to deliver an excellent level of care.

Next steps

If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Basanti Lama, the Internal Recruiter for this role.
The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Basanti will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Wayland if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
