We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.

CNWL is recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare.

This post is a full time post (part time will be considered) and you will be working as an integral part of the team providing health services to young people within a secure setting. The secure setting has clear duties to the children and young people in its care: to safeguard and promote their welfare, to promote their good health and emotional well being, and to take account of their specific needs as children.

Medway is one of four purpose built STCs and is situated in Rochester, Kent. It offers secure provision for approximately 67 children and young people aged from 12 to 17 who meet the criteria for a custodial sentence, or who are remanded to a secure setting.

CNWL’s Offender Care is made up of a highly motivated and passionate team with vast experience in healthcare within a secure environment. We deliver health care in a range of settings; prisons, secure hospital and in the community. Our vision is: “Working in partnership with the criminal justice system and other agencies, we will provide responsive, dependable and high quality primary care, mental health and substance misuse services to existing offenders (and those at risk of offending) in the communities we serve, to improve their health status and to encourage social inclusion.”

CNWL and our partners from the Commissioning Authority, Youth Justice Board and the Secure Training Centre are committed to the further development and modernisation of healthcare provision to achieve equivalence with the services available to the wider community. In Medway STC we believe we have an opportunity to go beyond such a goal and provide a truly excellent service. We are looking for staff who can support us make that vision a reality.

Joining a large, forward-thinking Trust will bring successful candidates excellent development opportunities, an exciting career structure, and job satisfaction. Working within an experienced team, we are looking for the best clinicians, who will work well as part of a Team and Trust with a ‘can do’ attitude.
