St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Working in the HMP Wandsworth Offender Healthcare Service offers unique experiences, learning and professional development opportunities and the support of two of the country’s leading NHS trusts.
The service is jointly run by St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – home of Channel 4’s ‘24 Hours in A&E’ and one of Britain’s busiest A&E departments – and specialist mental health provider, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
Add the resources, expertise and support of those two organisations to working in the UK’s largest prison and you will enjoy great opportunities to develop as adult and mental health nurses or pharmacy technicians.
The Offender Healthcare Service is looking for committed professionals who thrive on variety and responsibility. You will receive exceptional support from specialist clinicians and experienced prison nursing staff, in a challenging, but rewarding environment. Head of Service, Jo Darrow, said: “Many prisoners have complex healthcare needs.
You will get experience and training in recognising and dealing with physical and mental health conditions. We are providing a 24-hour nurseled emergency response service, working closely with prison officer colleagues in a genuine multi-disciplinary team. Good health is vital to rehabilitation. We look after an often socially excluded population who do not always access healthcare as they should in the community.”
