Job description: Custody Nurses Required - Hertfordshire

Service Care Solutions are currently looking for Registered General Nurse's (RGN'S) to work within the Police Custody establishment.

This is an extremely varied and interesting role with a quick turnover in the number of patients seen.
We are seeking enthusiastic and dedicated nurses who are used to dealing with challenging or aggressive behaviour, patients with drug or alcohol problems, or anyone from an A+E, prison or forensic background.

Your core responsibilities will be the assessment of illness and injuries, alongside the ability to determine the detainees' fitness to be detained in custody, released, or charged - and to determine their competency to understand the charge.
Other responsibilities include the examining and forensic sampling of adult suspects, and the flexibility to be available for court attendance as and when necessary, and to treat detainees as patients and make clear that no evidence can be treated in 'confidence'.

The successful candidate MUST have the following:
*Current NMC registration (RGN)
*Experience in an autonomous/lone working role
