About The Role

Nursing in prison is never dull or predictable. On any given day the skills you use may be similar to those you need working in health promotion or A&E, alternatively, you may be supporting people to manage their mental health or substance misuse. It’s this variety that keeps things fresh and stimulating. Every day will bring new challenges and new experiences. But at the same time, you’ll have all the support you need to deliver the best care possible.
The role will be an experience like no other, requiring diverse and mixed nursing skills and background. One minute you could be delivering a nurse-led clinic and the next you are attending an emergency response.
You can expect to be involved in everything from clinical triage, suturing, wound care, and fracture clinics to the evaluation and development of patient care and standards. You’ll carry out nurse-led clinics, reviewing patient histories, undertaking relevant examinations and tests, organising any necessary treatment, and referring patients to other healthcare professionals when you need to.

About You

You will be a qualified Registered Nurse (Adult) with a real passion for developing your clinical skills in an environment that is ever-changing. If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!

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 is desirable but transferable clinical skills will be considered with appropriate training provided.

 
Further job information

This is a full-time role working 37.5 hours per week and we also welcome part-time applications.
 
You will be expected to cover night shifts from 21:00 – 07:45, on a working pattern of 7 nights on and 7 nights off. With a requirement for a day shift on rotation for ongoing professional development and support.
