About The Role

Make a difference from day one!
Are you collaborative, caring 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 Nurse (RGN) you will be an integral part of the healthcare team and will be involved in everything from clinical triage to the evaluation of patient care and standards. You’ll carry out – and potentially develop – nurse-led clinics, reviewing patient’s histories, undertaking relevant examinations and tests, organising any necessary treatment, and referring patients to other healthcare professionals when you need to.

You will also be working as part of a larger multi-disciplinary team, alongside the substance misuse and mental health teams. You will have an interest in Substance Misuse and have had some exposure to this environment.

With plenty of primary care experience, you could be involved in anything from undertaking a wide variety of screening, assessments, examinations and tests as well as answering emergency bells and potentially being the first person to attend an emergency. The main focus of this role will be to provide quality screening and assessment with the early days in custody patient cohort. We require a nurse who has excellent holistic assessment as well as being able to demonstrate accurate and detailed recording skills within in a fast paced multi-disciplinary environment. Your clinical assessment skills will be truly holistic, covering physical and mental health, as well as a good awareness of substance misuse issues.

In return for your hard work you will...
You’ll receive an annual salary up to £36,500 FTE - depending on experience + 2 year Golden Hello (£2,000 in Year 1 of service and £1,500 in Year 2 of service - conditions apply). You'll also get a number of benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays plus CPD and re-validation support.
Other benefits include cycle to work scheme plus training and clinical development opportunities.
Onsite benefits at HMP Winchester include access to an onsite gym and free parking.

About You

You will have 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.
