Make a difference from day one!

Prisons are challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work. If you want a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, 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 can we offer you?

As the Mental Health Lead Nurse you will be an integral part of the healthcare team by utilising your clinical skills, decision making and problem solving skills. In addition to triaging and leading clinics, reception screening, medication administration and responding to emergency situations you will manage other staff providing them managerial and clinical supervision.

Your role will involve supporting junior staff to carry out comprehensive assessments, confidently communicating treatment options and initiating supportive care plans. You will work with individuals on a 1-2-1 basis alongside the wider multi-disciplinary team.

There are great opportunities for training and development and the opportunity to work with interesting patients and learn new skills.
