I treat more than just symptoms

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.

About us...

Practice Plus Group is Health in Justice Market leader, providing healthcare services to people in custody 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.

To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP Channings Wood we’re looking for a Nurse to join our Substance Misuse team.

About the Job

As a Nurse within the Integrated Substance Misuse team, we will train you to carry out comprehensive assessments, initiate and review individual recovery plans and confidently communicate the full range of treatment options available to service users. While we will equip you with the knowledge understanding you will come with a commitment to recovery and a person-centered approach. Across everything you do, you’ll maintain accurate records and provide the kind of helpful, empathetic support that will make every patient feel at ease.

The Job Requirements

As an RGN/RMN with valid NMC registration and if you have experience working with substance misusers this will be an advantage but is not required. You may even be a student nurse close to graduation with a keen interest in substance misuse. Once you are fully trained the post will require you to work autonomously. We will support you with your continuing professional development and you will have a real passion for taking your skills further.

Self-motivated, you’ll show plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations. Beyond that, you should have a flexible approach and the ability to achieve changing priorities.

In return for your hard work you will...

Receive an annual salary of up to £33,000 depending on experience.

You'll also get several benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays plus CPD, and re-validation support.

Next steps...

If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by the Internal Recruiter for this role.

The recruiter will submit your CV to the hiring manager and in turn, will arrange an interview for you to attend at HMP Channings Wood if the hiring manager feels that you are suitable for the job.
