This brings a great opportunity to embrace change and embed culture. The role will be an experience like no other, requiring a diverse mixed nursing skills background and attracts nurses from a range of professional specialist areas, such as Assertive Outreach and Forensic Services.
Our service has defined structured Mental Health teams in operation. We have a nursing team that supports the assessment of prisoners within a 24hr healthcare environment, with a 15-bedded in-patient assessment ward and a Community Mental Health Team that offers Primary care, In-reach and Forensic models of engagement similar to those experienced and replicated within the wider community.
We want to employ a nurse who have a real understanding for the needs of the prisoner/offender population who can also bring innovation and change to our services. We see these services as a genuine specialism and are offering the opportunity to be part of it.
As part of our inspiring teams, you’ll have the scope to share ideas and follow them through into innovative practice.
