Break in to prison healthcare!

Are you looking for a change in your nursing career? Have you ever thought about working within the prison environment? Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding role with career developments? Then look no further… Care UK is 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. These roles are available at our HMP YOI Swinfen Hall site near Lichfield. HMP YOI Swinfen Hall, takes male offenders from across the country aged from 18-24 with sentences of four years or more. We are a new team working with a young patient group, giving us a great opportunity to help young people to engage in health and well-being, supporting the Prison’s efforts to improve their lives ready for release. We have a healthcare centre based in the middle of the Prison, with treatment rooms on the wings. At Swinfen Hall we are working towards and integrated service with the Mental Health and Substance misuse teams so you will gain insight and training in Mental health and Substance Misuse. The role will be an experience like no other requiring diverse and mixed nursing skills and background. One minute you could be delivering a chronic disease clinic and the next you are attending an emergency response. To ensure the continued quality of care at HMP YOI Swinfen Hall, we’re looking for Bank Nurses to come and join our team.
