Do you want to make a difference!
Then look no further… we have an exciting opportunity for an Advanced Nurse Practitioner to join our team at HMP The Verne.
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.
HMP The Verne is a 580 place prison for people on longer sentences who have been convicted of sexual offences. The population reflects the offender group with an older age of patients compared with other prisons. Patients are more likely to have long-term healthcare needs and many have experienced childhood trauma.
Practice Plus Group is Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to offenders across the country. Our model of care is our Wellbeing Approach – an integrated, comprehensive approach in recognition of the fact prisoners are a socially-excluded group with healthcare needs that are complex and often associated with poor outcomes. It adopts the premise no single health/wellbeing factor can be taken in isolation of other motivational issues which might impact a person’s care.
In return for your hard work you will...
Receive an annual salary of up to £50,000 depending on experience, pro rota. You'll also get several benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave, increasing with service up to 28 days per year + bank holidays, plus CPD and re-validation support.
Onsite benefits at HMP The Verne include access to an onsite gym, free parking, and subsidised café/restaurant.
Interested in clinical development?
We could give you the opportunity to develop into a specialist role of your interest and benefit to the service i.e. BBV, sexual health, plastering, ILS (intermediate life support), RCGP, and long-term condition courses.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
Utilising your skills in managing patients within a primary care setting and dealing with physical health concerns, mental health issues, and minor injuries, you'll be an integral member of the medical team, conducting clinics independently, completing administrative tasks (prescriptions, referrals, pathology results) and supporting or acting as the Duty Doctor and working on reception (new arrivals) processes.
Leading by example, you'll share your experience and knowledge by being involved in the educational and professional development of the nursing team through clinical supervision sessions both on the wings and formal teaching opportunities.
You'll work within your scope of practice, in accordance with Practice Plus Group and prison service policies and procedures in line with the NMC Code of professional conduct, performance, and ethics for nurses and midwives.
