CNWL (Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust) has almost 7,000 staff providing integrated healthcare to a third of London's population, Milton Keynes and areas beyond. We involve service users, carers, the public, staff and partner organisations in the way that we are run.

Our catchment area spans diverse communities, with over 100 first languages spoken. It contains areas of great affluence as well as areas of much deprivation. We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference. We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.

We are recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare. We aim to employ only the best people, and our experts are frequently called upon to contribute to national health strategy and policy, and many models of our care have been adapted for use in other countries.

We offer a generous relocation package (subject to eligibility assessment) and flexible working options, including bank assignments for most roles. See attached Staff Reward and Wellbeing Handbook detailing our benefits, discounts and wellbeing intiatives for staff.

Become part of our team. We care for you as much as you care for others.

Are you an exceptional Adult General Nurse looking for a rewarding new challenge? Would you like the opportunity to use your nursing skills in an environment like no other to make a real difference every day? Interested, then working in Heathrow IRC is just the place for you.

What do we offer?

  • ENHANCED BANK PAYMENTS - The hourly rate of bank pay is closer to agency rates and it is probably one of the highest rates in the NHS

About the Job

Heathrow IRC is an immigration removal centre (IRC) accommodating approximately 1000 adult male detainees and up to 16 female detainees (at full capacity). CNWL provides primary care, substance misuse, and mental health services to the whole population.

Work within the Primary Care Team is varied and includes triaging, emergency care and treatment, health promotion, effective care planning, and liaising with the multidisciplinary team. It’s this variety that keeps things interesting and stimulating. Every day will bring new challenges and new experiences but you’ll have all the support you need to deliver the best care possible from both the healthcare and the IRC team.

As the Band 7 Clinical Team Leader, you will lead the team in developing and enhancing the existing service, providing comprehensive evidence-based care across the enhanced care unit and the outpatient clinics. We will support you to develop both personally and managerially in order to provide the best possible outcomes for the people in our care.

About You

You will be a qualified Registered Nurse (Adult) with a real passion for delivering high-quality clinical care. You will be self-motivated, flexible, and work well within a team but be able to work autonomously.

You do not need to have secure environment experience as we will provide you with a full induction and training.

Not sure? We are always happy to arrange an informal visit to discuss further.
