Working in prison-based healthcare is challenging and rewarding – you can make a big difference to the women serving sentences or on remand, many of whom come from tough and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Joining a large, forward-thinking Trust will bring successful candidates excellent development opportunities, an exciting career structure, and job satisfaction. Working within an experienced in-reach team, we are looking for the best clinicians, who will work well as part of a Team and Trust with a ‘can do’ attitude.

We are looking for Registered Nurses, Occupational Therapists or Social Workers to join us as a Mental Health Practitioner at HMP Downview. This is a varied role working within a Mental Health Inreach Team and involves assessing and treating patients, accepting referrals, carrying out triage, liaising with the multidisciplinary team, providing effective case management to a defined caseload, and carrying out effective care planning.

This post attracts an additional Golden Hello incentive of up to £2,500. Please see attached additional document for full terms and conditions.
