About The Role

Looking for something a bit different in your Nursing career?

Have you ever thought about working within the prison environment? Are you looking for an opportunity to gain experience in a challenging and rewarding role? Then look no further…

Nursing in prison is never dull or predictable. On any given day the skills you use may be similar to those you need working in general practice, health promotion or A&E, alternatively you may be supporting people to manage their long term conditions or minor ailments. It’s this variety that keeps things fresh and stimulating. Every day will bring new challenges and new experiences. But at the same time, you’ll have all the support you need to deliver the best care possible.

The role will be an experience like no other, requiring a diverse and mixed nursing skills and background. One minute you could be delivering a nurse led clinic and the next you might be attending an emergency response.

You can expect to be involved in everything from clinical triage, suturing, wound care and vaccination clinics to the evaluation and development of patientcare and standards. You’ll carry out – and potentially develop – nurse-led clinics, reviewing patient histories, undertaking relevant examinations and tests, organising any necessary treatment and referring patients to other healthcare professionals when you need to.

About You

You will be a qualified and experienced RGN with a real passion for developing your clinical skills in an environment that is everchanging. 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!
