CRG Medical Services provides a variety of different roles to facilitate prisoners healthcare at HMP Chelmsford. Departments include Mental Health, Primary Care & Pharmaceuticals. Each department has it’s own manager who is in charge of subsequent positions such as Registered Mental Health Nurses (RMN’s), Registered General Nurses (RGN’s) & Pharmacists. Working underneath the positions mentioned prior we have our Support Workers, Health Care Assistants (HCA’s) & Pharmacy Team.
At HMP Altcourse, we only provide a Mental Health department. We pride ourselves on having some of the best Registered Mental Health Nurses (RMN’s) in the country. The fact that we are a private outsource partner we are able to offer employment packages that outweigh that of our competitors to make sure that our staff are fully looked after.
Patients within the criminal justice system are some of the most vulnerable members of society. In addition to leading a life within prison, they may struggle to access traditional healthcare resources. We are firm believers that our healthcare professionals play a vital role in prisoner rehabilitation.
By working with these patients we have a unique opportunity to make a difference. In addition to supporting the criminal justice process we aim, through meeting the healthcare needs of our detainees, to reduce re-offending and the subsequent impact this has on society.
In addition to traditional healthcare input, forensic clinicians provide expert skills in supporting the integrity of criminal investigations by performing forensic examinations, assessing capacity, and obtaining relevant forensic samples.
