    Have you thought about working within prison healthcare?

    Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day in an environment that never stands still, then this is it!

    HMP Lindholme is a Category C/D men's prison located near Hatfield Woodhouse in Doncaster and is a former RAF base offering a large open site. They have a hardworking, supportive and friendly team that encourage career progression and further education opportunities.

    As a Senior Substance Misuse Nurse you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, whilst being a support and resource to less experienced members of staff. You must be able to carry out comprehensive assessments, initiate and review individual recovery plans and confidently communicate the full range of treatment options available to service users.

    You will work with individuals, on a 1-1 basis, providing advice and information. You will support group work delivery and liaise with prescribers and Recovery Practitioners on clinical interventions. You will occasionally be required to support dispensing. You must have an understanding and commitment to recovery and a person-centred approach.
