Aggressive? Or suffering from a mental health condition? Uncooperative? Or lacking diabetes medication? Substance misuser? Or suffering from a head injury? This is where your detective skills really count.

When you're a Custody Nurse Practitioner you need to call on all your clinical expertise to work out what's wrong with detainees. Often, it's your decision that will determine the course of action. You won't always have a team to call on or a doctor to consult. Plus, officers will be waiting for your assessment. Which makes this one of the most challenging – but also rewarding – clinical roles you can have.

Working in a Metropolitan Police Service Custody Suite, you'll take responsibility for everything – from identifying appropriate interventions and collecting forensic samples, to maintaining complete and accurate records. So you need to be confident in your abilities and dedicated to providing the very highest standards of care. In return, we offer a generous bonus scheme including £2,500 joining bonus, £2,500 bonus after one year's service, and a £1,000 CPD allowance.
