Working at HMP Wandsworth: a healthcare environment like no other As a healthcare professional in one of the UK’s largest prisons, you’ll be exposed to a unique set of challenges and opportunities
HMP Wandsworth is soon to become a remand prison, meaning thousands more men will pass through its doors. To cope with this increased demand, the Offender Healthcare Service is recruiting.
Offenders have a vast range of physical and mental health needs, and substance misuse conditions. It’s estimated that 36% of prisoners in England and Wales have a physical disability or mental illness, and around 30% are estimated to have learning difficulties that affect their ability to cope with the criminal justice system.
