Gwen Macintyre, senior nurse, Health & Social Care North Lanarkshire, told Lanarkshire Live: “A career in prison healthcare is often one that most nurses wouldn’t even be aware of. However, we’re keen to highlight how fulfilling, and an opportunity for career advancement, this role can be.

“This nursing careers event is designed to give potential new recruits a real feeling for what a typical day would involve. It will also give them a chance to speak first-hand with some of the existing healthcare team at HMP Shotts.

“Nurses working in prisoner healthcare have a very varied working day which helps them develop a range of new skills. They play an important part in contributing to, and delivering, a comprehensive primary care service working closely with Mental Health and addiction colleagues.

“Our primary care staff are pivotal in working with the multi-disciplinary team to support new innovations in prisoner healthcare including chronic disease management for long-term conditions with advanced care clinics.
