Registered General Nurse

Job Reference: 847-A-18-1620

Spectrum Community Health
HMP Liverpool
To £29,608 per annum plus joining bonus of £1500

Spectrum Community Health CIC is a community owned, award winning health provider. Our recent success at achieving four new contracts demonstrates our policy of innovation and continuous improvement, and is testimony to our committed and talented teams. As a Social Enterprise our profits are reinvested into our staff and services, and we benefit from being independent, large enough to provide a level of security, yet small enough to be able to make things happen.

Our multi-disciplinary teams provide healthcare services to some of the most vulnerable people in our society, from diverse backgrounds, who present a full range of general, mental health and recovery concerns.

We are seeking enthusiastic, innovative and dynamic registered nurses who are focused on delivering high quality patient-centered care.

• Are you looking to work in a unique, supportive environment?
• Do you want to combine your primary care and acute and emergency nursing skills all in one place?
• Do you want to work with a friendly and innovative team?
• Do you want to have access to a wide range of training opportunities?
• Do you want to retain your NHS pension?

We require RGN’s to work in primary care and inpatient teams within HMP Liverpool. The ideal candidates will have a sound nursing knowledge base, excellent communication skills, an understanding of the complex needs of the residents and have the ability to operate confidently within an MDT.

HMP Liverpool is a category B/C male prison with a capacity of approximately 1250 residents. Spectrum have recently taken over provision of the integrated healthcare service. Residents have access to a 24 hour nursing and GP service as well as services from a number of other providers including mental health services, substance misuse and dentistry.

Please contact Steve Trwoga on 0151 530 4258 to discuss the opportunity further or arrange a visit

Due to the nature of working in a secure environment specific security criteria will be required to be met. (please see attached document)

On top of your basic salary, you will receive at least 27 days' holiday each year rising to 33 days after 10 years’ service (excluding bank holidays). You will also automatically become a member of the NHS pension scheme and will receive an excellent package of pension benefits which are one of the most generous and comprehensive in the UK.



Spectrum’s Terms and Conditions are comparable with those offered by the NHS (Agenda for Change or Medical and Dental), therefore, you will receive an excellent benefits package, including membership of the NHS pension scheme, life insurance, discounts, free parking (at the majority of sites, subject to availability). A full list of employee rewards and benefits is contained in the separate document attached.

The post holder will be expected to undertake safeguarding training (Children and Adults) appropriate to their role and adhere to policies and procedures relevant to the area they work in.
