What is Forensic Nursing
Secure Inpatient Services is a fascinating, unique yet challenging field that offers fantastic development opportunities in a supporting environment.
Forensic Mental Health and Learning Disability Nursing appeals to so many people due to the relationship between Mental Health and the complexities of offending behavior. The client group within Secure Inpatient Services consists mainly of people with a mental illness who have offended or been diverted from custody.
Our Healthcare Staff care for our service users in the various settings in which they live, and contribute to their therapeutic care and treatment of the person and his or her mental health or disability and offending behaviour.
We are always looking for people with the right values and behaviours to join our Forensic Services Team. Currently we are looking to recruit Registered Mental Health Nurses, Learning Disability Nurses and Healthcare Assistants.

Your Working Environment
Our Secure Inpatient Service facility in Middlesbrough has been carefully designed and constructed to meet the very specific needs of our service users. The buildings are built to medium and low secure standards, yet maintain an environment that is spacious, with ensuite bedrooms, ample outdoor, leisure and therapeutic space.
Our urban location provides good opportunities for community rehabilitation, including access to local facilities and use of public transport in order to optimise an individual’s recovery and discharge.
We have a dedicated physical healthcare suite with specialty physicians, dentistry, optometry, podiatry and general nurses. Roseberry Park shares the same site as James Cook University Teaching Hospital, which enables continuity of physical healthcare for patients requiring acute or out-patient care.
Ridgeway builds upon a long history of providing secure services in North East England, and replaces the previous regional secure unit, which was the first service of its kind in the country.
