Break into Prison Healthcare
If you’re looking for a challenging and rewarding nursing role and want to develop your clinical skills in an environment where no two days are the same then this could be the new job for you!
We offer a salary of up to £39,000 per annum depending on experience, plus other benefits including 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holiday days pro rata, as well as access to bank hours, CPD and re-validation.
HMP Wealstun is a Category C men's prison, located near the village of Thorp Arch in West Yorkshire, England
About the Job
Nursing in prison is never dull or predictable. On any given day the skills you use may be similar to those you need working in health promotion or A&E, alternatively you may be supporting people to manage their mental health or substance misuse. It’s this variety that keeps things fresh and stimulating. Every day will bring new challenges and new experiences. But at the same time, you’ll have all the support you need to deliver the best care possible.
The role will be an experience like no other, requiring a diverse and mixed nursing skills and background. One minute you could be delivering a nurse led clinic and the next you are attending an emergency response.
You can expect to be involved in everything from clinical triage, suturing, wound care and fracture clinics to the evaluation and development of patient care and standards. You’ll carry out – and potentially develop – nurse-led clinics, reviewing patient histories, undertaking relevant examinations and tests, organising any necessary treatment and referring patients to other healthcare professionals when you need to.
The Job Requirements
You will be a qualified Registered Nurse ( Adult Nurse ) with a real passion for developing your clinical skills in an environment that is ever changing. You’ll have a flexible approach working within a team that encourage new ideas and opinions on how to improve the service. If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!
