Every one of us makes 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 can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.

HMP Leeds is a Category B men's prison.

Practice Plus Group was recently awarded the healthcare contract at HMP The Mount and will begin delivering services on 1st October 2020; we are the 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 which 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.

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, substance misuse, ILS (intermediate life support), health promotion, phlebotomy, vaccinations, RCGP, and long term condition courses.

About you

As a Senior Mental Health Nurse you will work as part of an integrated healthcare team, utilising your clinical expertise, decision making and problem solving skills to provide skilled and evidence based nursing care for patients in the prison.

You will 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.

You'll be responsible for leading and developing a team providing clinical supervision to all staff.
