Job Outline: 

The  Senior Primary Care Nurse will contribute to the positive and aspirational workings of the nursing team, by promoting an agenda of recovery from the dependence on drugs and/or alcohol within the client group and which supports the goals of reducing re-offending, increasing re-integration into meaningful and sustained occupation and improving social and family relationships.

The purpose of this post is to provide clinical skills and interventions to substance misusing clients and to deliver them to the highest standard of care and in line with latest national guidelines and standards, G4S policies and procedures and statutory frameworks governing patient care in a prison setting. The Staff Nurse is a practice nurse as well as a clinical supervisor/leader for lower grade nurses and therefore carries responsibility for the provision of high quality, effective and safe treatment and recovery services for our service users. 


The Ideal Candidate:

Essential Skills and Knowledge Required: 

  • 1st level RGN or RMN with current registration with the UK Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC).
  • Evidence of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
  • Proven post nursing registration experience
  • Experience of key working and care planning
  • Experience of working within a multi-disciplinary team
  • Ability to work with minimal supervision.
  • Ability to work within a multidisciplinary team.
  • Ability to lead and develop teams.
  • Ability to provide and co-ordinate clinical and management supervision
  • Ability to lead and facilitate decision-making processes

 

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.
