About The Role

Have you thought about working within prison healthcare?
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 in an environment that never stands still, then this is it!
 
You will ensure that you assess physical and mental health of prisoners on admission to the prison and throughout their period of custody so that any appropriate referral can be made. You will also be responsible for making a clinical judgement with regard to any immediate need and long term treatment. 

About You

You will be a qualified Registered Nurse (Mental Health) and have a flexible approach working within a team that encourage new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service.

You should possess a good working knowledge of conducting risk assessments and care planning. Knowledge in therapeutic interventions such as CBT or Steps to Wellbeing are desirable but transferable clinical skills will be considered with appropriate training provided.
 
You’ll receive an hourly pay rate of £21. We offer a whole host of additional benefits such as: free DBS check, free uniform, an extensive training and induction structure for all employees along with an employee recognition scheme (for anyone you refer into a permanent role). It doesn’t stop there…we also offer a company pension scheme, NHS blue light card, discounted Costco memberships, access to Boundless memberships for attractions and parks, shopping discounts and an 24/7 employee assistance helpline.


About Us

Practice Plus Group is a specialist provider of NHS services into prison healthcare across over 45 different prisons, young offenders and immigration removal centres. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history. The prison population is one of the most vulnerable and challenged patient groups in society and the delivery of their health care is conducted within often difficult and demanding environments.
 
HMP Ford is a Category D prison, also known as a resettlement or open prison for adult men.

Practice Plus Group’s mission is Access to Excellence.  Our core values are; 
we treat patients and each other as we would like to be treated
we act with integrity
we embrace diversity
we strive to do things better together

Patients can only access excellence if we commit to living our values in everything we do when we’re at work.
 
If you share these values and have transferable skills we want to meet you!
