Job Details

Experienced first level Registered Adult or Mental Health Nurses required.

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. It’s your decision that will determine the course of action. 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.

Come and see us on our stand at the RCNi Nursing Careers and Jobs Fair on 8th & 9th September at the Business Design Centre, Islington.

The MPS’s recruitment practices reflect our commitment to safeguarding the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. The MPS is an equal opportunities employer.

We are the largest police service in England- with around 145,000 detainees in our custody suites every year. We directly employ our nurses as Custody Nurse Practitioners.

We offer an attractive recruitment and retention package.

We are in the final stages of delivering our nurse-led service. 

Come and join us to work in a different environment, where no two days are the same and be part of an extended team to keep our detainees safe.
