I treat more than just symptoms
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 healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.
Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2018 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.
We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.
Interested in clinical development?
We could give you the opportunity to develop in to a specialist role of your interest and benefit to the service i.e. ANP, BBV, sexual health, plastering, ILS/ALS (intermediate life support and advanced life support), health promotion, phlebotomy, vaccinations, suturing, wound care, RCGP, and long term condition courses.
In return for your hard work you will...
Receive an annual salary of up to £29,000 (pro rata) depending on experience. 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, childcare vouchers plus training and clinical development opportunities.
Onsite benefits at HMP Sudbury include access to an onsite gym, free parking and subsidised café/restaurant.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
As a Mental Health Nurse 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 will carry out and 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. There are great opportunities for training and development and the opportunity to work with interesting patients and learn new skills.
Nurses new to the prison environment will be supported and mentored throughout your first 6 months with Care UK by experienced teams of highly skilled nurses and practitioners as well as managers with long standing prison experience.
If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Christie Hughes, the Internal Recruiter for this role.
The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn Christie will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Sudbury if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
This is a part-time role working 18.5 hours per week.
