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. mental health, CBT, substance misuse, ANP, BBV, sexual health, plastering, ILS, ALS, 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 £32,000 - £36,000 - dependent 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 paid for enhanced DBS certificate, cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers, staff wellbeing, plus training and clinical development opportunities.
Onsite benefits at HMP Pentonville include access to a free gym on site (outside of regime hours), free parking, subsidised mess/canteen.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
A professional qualification appropriate to the delivery of mental health and social care i.e. NMC, HCPC, BACP. Utilising your skills in managing patients within a mental health setting, you'll lead by example, sharing your experience and knowledge of a range of models of social and mental health care practice including delivering CBT and solution focused interventions. You'll be involved in the educational and professional development of the team through clinical supervision sessions both on the wings and formal teaching opportunities.
You'll work within your scope of practice, in accordance with Care UK and prison service policies and procedures in line with your professional registration code of conduct, performance and ethics.
