About The Role


Do you constantly strive to do things better for your patients? Our unfaltering dedication to quality and innovation is something that we are very proud of. If you are a qualified Mental Health Professional with a degree in Healthcare or Social Work and want to be part of a professional team that is passionate about providing first class patient care, we would like to hear from you. As a Mental Health Practitioner working within the team at Gatwick Immigration Removal Centre you will provide a holistic package of care to patients within the prison system and manage the assessment of health needs, planning, delivery and evaluation of care, for the prison population, including clinical risk assessment.
 

About You

You will be a registered Mental Health Professional with a degree in Healthcare or Social Work, CQSW/DipSW or equivalent. This could be a dual-qualified (MH and LD) Nurse as identified in the national specification and looking to develop your current skills in a unique and ever changing environment. You will have a passion for learning and development, as well as having the initiative to bring new ideas and opinions on how to improve the healthcare services. Prison Healthcare experience is not essential although we do ask that you have experience within primary care.

You should possess a good working knowledge of conducting risk assessments and care planning as well as someone who is creative and forward thinking to work through the issues that may arise in this challenging but exciting environment. Knowledge in therapeutic interventions such as CBT or Steps to Wellbeing are desirable but transferable clinical skills will be considered with appropriate training provided.
