Are you looking for a challenge?

Do you enjoy variety and dealing with complex patients?

Do you want to make a difference?

'Are you newly qualified or nearing the end of your nurse training?

Have you thought about a career in prison nursing?

As a newly qualified nurse at HMP Wandsworth we are able to offer a supportive learning and development environment and facilitate your preceptorship program.
Please call us for further information.'

We have a number of exciting and challenging new posts in the Offender Healthcare Service at HMP Wandsworth. This is a unique opportunity to be part of Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and to work at one of the largest prisons in the UK. You will assist us to provide excellent primary care and substance misuse services for our population.

Offenders are a challenging population group to work with and they often have complex healthcare needs. Offenders often have chaotic lives in the community and a history of poor engagement with community healthcare services. With high rates of substance misuse and mental health problems, this is a real chance to make a difference.

You will be joining us at an exciting time and be involved in the implementation of a Health and Wellbeing Model to improve offender healthcare. You will join our established team of nurses across the prison and will be part of a multidisciplinary team supporting the following services: Primary Care services including First Night in Custody screening, secondary screening, nurse clinics, long term condition management, health promotion; Inpatient Unit; Emergency Response and Substance Misuse. You will be supported by our friendly team of healthcare staff in an environment where no two days are the same.

We are looking for Band 5 nurses from a wide variety of backgrounds. Experience of working with patients with substance misuse and mental health issues, or experience within a prison environment would be an advantage, but not essential as full support and training will be provided.

All applicants will be expected to take a numeracy test and only applicants who pass this test will be interviewed.

Oxleas NHS Trust operates a Probationary Period, further details are available on request.
