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.
HMP Ford is a category D resettlement prison, located in Ford, in West Sussex. With an operational capacity of 534, it looks after those with a minimum of 14 weeks left to serve, with 160 men going out to work daily. It’s located approximately 10 mins from Arundel, 15 minutes of Bognor Regis, 25 minutes from Chichester, 30 minutes of Worthing and 55 minutes from Brighton and Hove.
Care UK recently began delivering the healthcare services at HMP Ford. We are the Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs which are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/well being factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP Ford, we’re looking for a Primary Care Nurse to support us and the existing team in this new venture.

What do we need from you so you can do the job?
As a Registered Nurse you’ll be an integral part of the multi-disciplinary healthcare team by bringing your top notch clinical skills and passion for care.
