I want to report to the police

Call the police on 101 or 999.

A specially trained officer will come to speak with you.

The officer may call The Oak Centre SARC to arrange for a doctor or nurse to examine you to check you are ok and to look for forensic evidence.

You can have an examination even if you have already washed, although there will be more DNA evidence on your body if you feel able to wait until after an examination.

We will make sure that your sexual health is looked after.

We can give you emergency contraception if needed.

After you leave The Oak Centre SARC an Independent Sexual Violence Adviser can support you with the police investigation.

We will offer you practical and emotional support including counselling.

I know that I don’t want to report to the police

If you are sure you do not wish to report to the police at any point then, there is no need to put yourself through a medical, we would suggest that you call sexual health, and for your own peace of mind have a health check.
