Looking for a Nursing role that’s different from all others?

If so, look no further – you’ll find with us in the Healthcare Team at HMP Bristol. Because all good healthcare staff should go to prison…


What you’ll do

In this role you’ll be working with our strong Medicines Management team to help safely supply and administer medicines to patients.
