Job outline: As a Paramedic, you will provide high quality emergency care and minor injury treatment to patients with both primary care and acute care needs in a prison setting by playing an active part in the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of the patients care. You will also provide care for the physical and mental health needs of offenders in line with professional, contractual and company requirements. You will be required to work as part of a team delivering care to patients both within the Healthcare Centre and on the Wings as part of a team of Primary Care Nurses within the prison.


The role requires you to function autonomously and within your sphere of competency, whilst being a support and resource to less experienced members of staff. You must be able to assess patients, plan their care, administer treatment and discharge them or refer them as appropriate to other healthcare professionals / external agencies. The HMP sites are clinical facilities which require an individual to have the ability to work effectively as part of a multi professional team within a fast pace environment, in line with the protocols and policies of the local Service, G4S and professional bodies.

  • Able to demonstrate a high level of literacy and numeracy
  • Able to provide examples of diversity in practice
  • Able to work within challenging and complex situations

*Golden Hello
· £500 - first month's salary
· £500 - after 12 months
· £500 - after 24 months
 

This role requires the ability to work with vulnerable, frail people, who may be distressed or experiencing pain, in a caring and compassionate way. A Criminal Records Bureau check will therefore be required to exclude any
individual with a history of criminal behaviour which could be considered unacceptable (by G4S or the clients) in a patient care environment. Safety is of paramount importance and the post holder must ensure that safe
systems of work are followed without compromise. The post holder needs to be committed to maintaining high standards of customer care and service delivery.
