About The Role

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.

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.

You will be responsible for carrying out effective, patient centred mental health administration to ensure the smooth day to day running of the service. You will be confident carrying out general administrative duties in relation to our patients’ mental health care. You will also be responsible for collecting and collating accurate service performance data for internal and external reporting requirements.

The situation in the prison can change at any minute. You need to be able to communicate effectively, work as part of a team and follow instruction diligently.

It’s this variety that keeps things fresh and stimulating. Every day will bring new challenges and new experiences but you’ll have all the support you need to deliver the best practice possible from both the healthcare team and the prison team.

You'll need to be confident in a prison setting as the office will be based in Healthcare, off a prison wing.
