Safeguarding the safety and welfare of service users, vulnerable patients, staff and the public through an SIA trained specialist with a health and social care perspective.

Enhanced Security Officer

The profile of Healthcare Security has changed.

The line drawn between safeguarding the security of staff and service users and providing the care service users deserve has disappeared while the need for both has never been stronger.

The development of the Enhanced Security Officer allows us to provide outstanding care while safeguarding the safety and welfare of service users, staff and the general public in a single role.

This will not only offer service quality and clarity, but also allow you to create tangible efficiencies in its care provision.

The Enhanced Security Officer (ESO) will:

  • offer one to one care to service users
  • supporting clinical staff
  • hold a valid SIA badge
  • be able to offer NHS approved restraint interventions
  • be developed and deployed with an emphasis on high quality training.


Specialist skills training to support clinical staff and safeguard service users in challenging settings.


As well as providing our people with accredited in-house De-escalation, Management and Intervention training, Secure Care are proud to partner with Gary Firkins, DMI Service Lead for Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

This partnership underlines our commitment to patient physical and mental health care within the learning disabilities, health and social care environment.

Training is delivered both onside and at our Positive ProActive Midlands Training Centre in Leicester.
