What: Open day for pharmacy technicians and registered nurses within our medicines management service
When: Friday 8 December 2018, 12:00pm
Where: HMP Bristol, 19 Cambridge Rd, Bristol BS7 8PS (map and directions below)


Prison healthcare is diverse, challenging and – above all – highly rewarding. We firmly believe that good healthcare can change lives. Could you be part of our team?

If you’re a pharmacy technician or registered nurse interested in working with patients in prison, we’d love to invite you to our open day.

Meet the team, ask questions and find out what life in medicines management in a prison environment is really like.


What is medicines management?

Our wing-based Medicines Management Team administers and supplies medicines to patients, delivering pharmacy triage and drop-in clinics and supporting prescription pathways.

The team is part of an integrated health service, working in a challenging yet highly rewarding environment to empower patients to take greater responsibility for their health and better understand the medicines they take.


What the day offers

The day begins at 12:00pm with a presentation from our Head of Healthcare, Anita Parmar, and some of our senior healthcare staff at HMP Bristol to give you a feel for the service we offer.

This will be followed by a Q&A and smaller open forum discussions, led by the team, to help you get a feel for what prison healthcare is really like.

For those who’d like to take the next step, there’ll be opportunities to interview for current vacancies (Band 5 Pharmacy Technician/Nurse) throughout the day – simply follow the links under ‘Find out more’ below to complete an application form.
