Forensic Medical Services

We are a leading provider of fully managed forensic medical services to police authorities across the UK. Providing a 24 hour a day service, we provide  telephone medical advice and custody suite healthcare management, including medical support, delivered through a team of forensic medical examiners (FMEs), custody nurses and police surgeons.

Our forensic medical teams provide care for detainees, from the point of arrest and throughout the detention process. We ensure our care is compliant with professional, legislative and ethical standards (such as PACE).

Routine tasks carried out by our Forensic Medical Examiners, Police Surgeons and Custody Nurses include:

  • Examining detained individuals
  • Assessing and treating victims, suspects and witnesses
  • Taking samples
  • Providing statements
  • Giving evidence in court.

Each member of the team is security vetted, CRB checked and screened for relevant experience and certification.

Our forensic medical services offering is supported by industry leading call-handling software that ensures each call is logged and referenced, providing a clear audit trail for clients and rapid retrieval of information for criminal justice purposes. All calls are recorded for internal training and quality management purposes.

We also work with partner forces and NHS commissioners to develop new services that support demand reduction, assist in NHS and police efficiencies and reduce reoffender rates.
