Are you considering a change of direction in your nursing career? Have you ever considered applying your skills to looking after men, over 18, in a prison setting?
We work for Health and Justice services as part of Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) and take great pride in the work that we do in a very challenging environment. If you think you would be able to work in a high-pressured setting, delivering all aspects of clinical care, then this could be the role for you.
We are looking for Registered Adult Nurses to join us as part of the Primary Care team within the prison of HMP High Down. We will consider both experienced and newly qualified nurses. We are able to offer supervision, training and preceptorship. You do not need to have prison experience as we will provide you with a full induction and training. We welcome full-time and part-time applications.
Please note that any candidate wishing to apply for a role within our team will have to complete prison vetting clearance. This requires that you have been a resident in the UK for a minimum of 3 years.
Primary care is responsible for screening all new arrivals, health promotion, long term condition management, minor ailments and responding to incidents wherever they may occur in the prison. Working alongside the Mental Health and Substance Misuse team affords us the benefit of being able to work in a truly holistic manner, responding to the needs of both physical and mental well-being in partnership. Our other partners include; GP, dentistry, optician, podiatry, physio and radiology. We also work closely with HMPPS staff, education and other professionals.
Our population is one which is either excluded from mainstream healthcare services or have very limited interaction with health services in the community. Your interactions could influence the way a man thinks about his future, thinks about his health needs, and feels about himself and others. You could make a real difference.
It takes a very special, dedicated, resilient and caring nurse to provide care in such an ever changing, dynamic environment and you will be joining like-minded exceptional healthcare professionals.
