Interested in Prison Healthcare but unsure of what to expect?

Have you ever thought that working within a prison could be interesting but you're just not sure if it would be the right role for you?

Due to the success we have previously had at our last open day we are hosting another open day at HMP Dovegate on the 11th June 2019.

Who are we looking for?

We are welcoming Registered Adult, Mental Health and Learning Disability Nurses, Pharmacy Technicians and Substance Misuse Nurses (RGN or RMN - with Substance Misuse experience) to come and meet the healthcare teams from HMP Dovegate and learn about how Care UK works and what opportunities we have within the HMP site. We are also interested in candidates who have prescribing qualifications.

Although this open day is based at HMP Dovegate, we are looking for interest in the following sites: HMP Dovegate, HMP Foston Hall, HMP Sudbury and HMP Swinfen Hall.

When will this be?

Date: 11/06/2019
Start: 09:30am

Please note, we do ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes early to pass through the gate and receive your visitors badge for the day.

Location: HMP Dovegate, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, ST14 8XR

To attend this event, we ask that you contact Briony Dove on the details to the side of this advertisement.

What should you expect on the day?

This day will give anyone who may be interested in a career within Health in Justice the opportunity to speak with staff and management who work in the secure environment, an insight to mental health, primary care and substance misuse as well as pharmacy within the prison, Q&A sessions with our Healthcare management, and finally a visit around the establishment to get a feel for what prison healthcare is really like.

During the day you will be speaking with staff about the wealth of benefits that Care UK offers including possibility of flexible working, salary packages and training opportunities.

Bring your CV and we will interview you on the day, you could go home with a potential job offer!
