About The Role

I help to make a difference!
Are you collaborative 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 registered health care professional and mental health practitioner you will work in a dual role with nursing colleagues and maintain your own professional identity.

The post holder will provide strong clinical leadership, ensuring evidence-based practice is delivered to shape and improve the quality of services. The post holder will be responsible for establishing operational and clinical service mechanisms that support safe high-quality care throughout the service care delivery (8-6 pm, 7 days per week).

As a member of the Integrated Mental Health Team (IMHT), you will provide flexible, responsive, proactive assessment, care, and management to individuals experiencing early signs of relapse, new acute phase mental illness, distress, or posing a risk in terms of self-harm.

All interventions will be short-term; solution-focused and will build on maintaining the safety, wellbeing, and empowerment of the service user. The IMHT implements a Single Point of Access (SPA) and an Integrated Mental Health Team structure which provides individualised care as defined by the stepped care model and crisis resolution provision.

The PPG Wellbeing Approach is central to the care delivery. The Post-holder will work collaboratively with the prison, primary care, and other specialist clinicians to meet the needs of your patients to facilitate patient-focused, innovative, evidence-based practice, in line with NICE guidance and Practice Plus Group objectives.

About Us

 
HMP Isle of Wight is a Category B Men's training Prison and holds up to approximately 1100 prisoners across two sites with a central administration team.
 
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.

Practice Plus Group are 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/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
 
At Practice Plus Group we actively promote diversity and equal opportunities and we are committed to this in both the running of our prison healthcare service and how we recruit our staff. We actively encourage applications from everyone with the essential requirements of the job, regardless of any protected characteristics.
