HMP Humber is a male category C resettlement prison, situated just outside of the East Riding of Yorkshire’s village, South Cave. The location boasts excellent travel links, with the A63 and the M62 being less than a 10 minute drive away.

CHCP CIC currently provides integrated offender healthcare services across HMP Hull and HMP Humber. We deliver a community-based model, bringing clinical expertise to the patients in our care, working closely with the multi-agency workforce. We are currently recruiting band 5 staff nurses to join our Primary care team, and in return we can offer fantastic opportunities in professional development and training.

 

If you’re looking for a varied and challenging role, where no two days are the same, this is the one for you.

 

A typical day in the life of an Offender Health Primary care Nurse…..

The day will start at 7:00 am, where you will receive a handover from the night nurse, where any patients of concern and plans of care will be communicated.

Medication administration will then commence at 8:00, where alongside a team of Pharmacy Technicians, Nursing associates and Healthcare assistants, you will have a part to play in delivering safe and effective treatments, both prescribed, and via Patient Group Direction (PGD) to our designated patient group.

Following on from morning medications, you may be allocated to work within the clinics for that day, where you will lead in the provision of specialist clinics such as sexual health, infectious disease management, vaccinations and Long term condition management. You will use your skills and knowledge in wound care, compression therapy, wound closure, phlebotomy and taking ECG’s in order to meet the varied health needs and requirements of our patients. Whilst you are working autonomously within your clinic, other clinics will also be taking place in the Health center, run by a variety of professionals such as GP’s, Physiotherapists, Pharmacists, Dental, Psychiatry, Nurse Practitioners and visiting specialists.

Alternatively, you may be allocated to be the Reception Nurse for the day, where you will see all of the men who leave the establishment, either for release, transfer, or simply going out to attend an appointment at the hospital. You will ensure that they are medically fit and safe to travel, and ensure that continuing healthcare has been arranged for their release where appropriate. Your afternoon as the Reception nurse will be spent carrying out a comprehensive health screen for all of the new men who come into the establishment. You will assess all aspects of their health and wellbeing, and refer onto services such as the Mental Health team or the Drug and alcohol Recovery team where appropriate.

Alongside these two roles, the Emergency Response Nurse will hold a radio, and will be called to any medical emergency within the prison estate. You will be trained to Immediate Life Support level, and will have the confidence and ability to deal with a variety of emergency and Urgent care situations. You will also be called upon to triage patients and provide appropriate nurse-led treatment via PGD, or alternatively signpost to the most appropriate professional, make referrals and liaise effectively with other agencies to ensure that the health needs of the patients are met to a high and efficient standard.

 

If you would like to be a valued member of our Offender Healthcare service, you will be fully supported throughout your induction period to ensure that you have the right level of training, in order for you to confidently meet our competency framework. You will be a RGN/ RN adult, and you will be motivated and willing to participate in CPD activities and learning in order to develop and drive our service forward. You will have the ability to work autonomously, and make safe clinical and operational judgements in the absence of senior staff, and in turn you will be fully supported by the multidisciplinary workforce.

 

Informal visits are welcomed by appointment. If you would like to arrange a visit, or make any other enquiries, please contact Kerrie Stead, Clinical Team Leader on kerrie.stead@nhs.net, or 01430 273032/ 01430 273371.
