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 job for you.

As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.

Job Summary/Scope:

Band 5 RMN / LD Nurse full time post, HMP Long Lartin

An opportunity has arisen for a passionate RMN /LD Nurse to join our integrated Mental Health and Substance MisuseTeam based within HMP Long Lartin,

HMP Long Lartin is part of HMP’s High Secure Estate housing just over 600 Category A & B male prisoners. They are aged 21 years and over, the majority of which are serving long sentences.

As a member of a multi-disciplinary team, the post holder is responsible for managing a caseload of service users/patients within HMP Long Lartin. The post holder is required to work with service users from a holistic perspective, taking into account both substance misuse and mental health needs.

This post is suitable for qualified RMN / LD nurses with a minimum of 12 months experience post qualifying.

If you feel a visit to the prison would be beneficial this can be arranged where you will be able to meet the team or feel free to call us for an informal discussion.
