Are you looking for a new challenge in an environment where no two days are the same?

Patient care is at the centre of what we do and we are looking for an enthusiastic, hardworking and committed nurse who wants to make a difference to our patient's lives. HMP Warren Hill is a category C adult male prison, located near the village of Hollesley in Suffolk (Hollesley, Woodbridge) - right near the coast and within 40 minutes' drive of Ipswich. We open Monday - Friday, 08:00-19:30 and weekends and public holidays 08:30-18:00. We provide a GP surgery provision alongside access to mental health and substance misuse services.

Make a difference from day one!

Prisons are challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work. If you are a qualified nurse, or soon to qualify, and want a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, then this is it! 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. We are the market leader, providing care to over 30,000 patients in over 40 prisons across the country. Our core values are; everyone makes a difference, patients are at the heart of everything we do and together we make things better. If you share these values and have transferable skills we want to meet you!

What can we offer you?

As a Registered Primary Care Nurse (Adult Nurse) you will be an integral part of the healthcare team by bringing your clinical skills and passion for care. You could be involved in anything from triaging and leading clinics, reception screening, medication administration as well as responding to emergency situations. We offer opportunities to develop your role. Examples include sexual health, health promotion, vaccinations, wound care, long term condition courses, minor illnesses/injuries and infection control. You will also be working as part of a larger multi-disciplinary team, alongside the substance misuse and mental health teams. There are great opportunities for training and development and the opportunity to work with interesting patients and learn new skills.
