Job Requirements:

We are looking for Primary Care Nurses to join us as part of the Primary Care team within the prison of HMP High Down.

Primary Care in prison? Yes, this is an opportunity to use all of your clinical and interpersonal skills, an opportunity to develop new skills and work with a unique population group who need your nursing skills.

We work with a range of men who are sentenced, some of whom have been sentenced for life. For some it is the first time in prison, for others it's their twentieth. Every person we work with could be someone’s father, son, husband or brother. Our job is not to judge, our job is to provide exceptional care with kindness and compassion. Our motto? Caring not judging.

Health and wellbeing is one of the pathways to reducing re-offending. It could be through your interactions that changes the way a man thinks about his future, thinks about his health needs, and feels about himself and others. You could make a difference.

This is a varied role working within a Primary Care setting and involves assessing, treating and carrying out effective care planning. It takes a very special, dedicated, resilient and caring nurse to provide care in such an ever changing, dynamic environment and you will be joining like-minded exceptional healthcare professionals.

Working alongside the Mental Health and Substance Misuse team affords us the benefit of being able to work in a truly holistic manner, responding to the needs of both physical and mental well-being in partnership.
