We care without judgement.

That’s the message from healthcare professionals at the Isle of Sheppey’s three prisons as they prepare to open their doors to potential new recruits.

As part of a drive to recruit registered general nurses and mental health nurses we running open days for clinicians who are interested in finding out more about working in a prison environment.

Taking place on 19 and 26 March, the sessions are designed to give nurses the opportunity to find out what it is like providing healthcare services in a prison.

Louise Chambers, Head of Healthcare at HMP Elmley said: ‘Working in a prison is a unique and challenging environment, but our nurses care without judgement. Regardless of what crime our patients might have committed, we ensure that the healthcare they receive behind bars is equal to what they would receive in the community. Our roles are challenging, but highly rewarding, and we are running these open days so candidates can experience the environment first-hand to help them decide whether a career in prison healthcare is for them.’

The open day will run morning and afternoon sessions, each lasting around two hours. Clinicians who are interested in attending should apply with their CV, and will be contacted to discuss their preferred session.
