Registered Nurse - HMP Manchester
Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust is looking for an enthusiastic Registered General Nurse to provide excellent nursing care to patients within the High Security environment of HM Prison Manchester.
Although primarily based on the Inpatient Unit, the role will involve working across all areas of the prison.
The role of a nurse within the Prison Service offers much more than a typical healthcare career. Delivering high quality care in a secure prison environment, providing 24 hour cover, you will develop your clinical and primary care expertise working with clients who may require input from a number of healthcare agencies. You will be able to build relationships with prisoners from their very first day, in both our inpatient and outpatient facilities, assessing and meeting their diverse and often complex healthcare needs and seeing the positive impact of your work in their lives.
If you would like to discuss this opportunity please contact Diane Press on ( Phone number removed ) .
