About The Role

I treat more than just symptoms
Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?

Heathrow Immigration Removal Centre is a detentions centre located next to Heathrow Airport in Harmondsworth, London Borough of Hillingdon. It is the largest immigration removal centre in Europe, with a capacity of 965 residents – mainly adult males, however it does house some adult female detainees.

Practice Plus Group will be taking over the contract from the existing providers on 1st April 2022 and will be delivering a fully integrated Health & Wellbeing Service focussing around key patient needs within Heathrow IRC. If you want to make a real difference to someone’s present and future with an opportunity to use all of your clinical and interpersonal skills whilst developing new abilities then this is the place to be!

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/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.

We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as a range of other employee benefits.

As a Registered Nurse you’ll be an integral part of the healthcare team by bringing your top notch clinical skills and passion for care. With plenty of primary care experience, you could be involved in anything from developing and leading clinics, undertaking examinations and tests as well as answering emergency bells and potentially being the first person to attend an emergency.

If you have a passion for bringing new ideas to the table then we’re here to listen on how we can improve and continue to develop our healthcare service within this environment.
