Offender Healthcare – HMP Wandsworth

Getting the balance right behind bars is what it’s all about for trust staff working at HMP Wandsworth. The Offender Healthcare Service at HMP Wandsworth – run in partnership by two leading London NHS Foundation Trusts – is growing, as the prison becomes largely a remand prison. As a ‘Reform Prison’, HMP Wandsworth is putting physical and mental health right at the forefront of rehabilitation. It’s a challenging, but rewarding environment – where you will make a difference every day. We have a variety of nursing, medical, pharmacy and support roles.

We offer

  • An environment that will enable you to develop and broaden your clinical portfolio.
  • Care for patients with complex care needs, dependencies and mental health issues.
  • Support in your career development and training.
  • Mentoring and clinical supervision to support you in your work.
  • Opportunities to work across organisational boundaries within an extended multidisciplinary team.
  • Free access to the gym and free parking
  • Outstanding career progression opportunities.
