Do you want to make a difference?

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 will be supported to develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.

HMP Channings Wood is a category C adult male prison situated near the market town of Newton Abbot located in the beautiful village of Denbury. It's within 3 miles of the Newton Abbot train station.

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.

What do we need from you so you can do the job?

As a Primary Care Team Leader, you will be a registered general nurse, who will provide leadership to a team of nurses and other health professionals.

You will have knowledge and experience of managing long-term conditions and health promotion and be able to share that knowledge with the wider team to provide high-class healthcare service to the resident population. You will be providing appointment-based face-to-face, safe, and effective health assessments and treatments as well as responding to emergencies, minor injuries, and leading on the reception and discharge of patients.
You'll be responsible for the rota management of the primary care team, their clinical supervision, and line management.

You will work closely with other team leaders, healthcare managers, and prison colleagues to deliver health services in an innovative and proactive way to meet the requirements of the patients, HMPPS, NHS England, Public Health, and Practice Plus Group.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an annual salary of up to £45,000 - depending on experience. 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 (pro-rata for part-time), plus CPD and re-validation support.
Other benefits include a cycle to work scheme plus training and clinical development opportunities.
