Staff Nurse (RN - Adult) - HMP Brixton

Job Description

Break into prison healthcare!

Are you 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?
We offer a salary of between £26,500 - £32,000 per annum depending on experience, plus other benefits including a favourable shift pattern - no nights, free onsite parking, free onsite gym facilities, opportunities to develop nurse led clinics in areas of interest.

As a Registered Nurse - Adult, you'll work as part of a team of Primary Care Nurses within HMP Brixton's Integrated Healthcare Services, a local prison for adult males aged over 21.

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.

About You

You will be a qualified Registered Nurse (Adult) 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!
