If you attend The Bridge, you may meet one of our Forensic Nurse Examiners or Doctors.
All of the Nurses & Doctors at The Bridge are specially trained in caring for people who have experienced rape or sexual assault.
They will be able to discuss your options, answer any questions and address any of your worries.
They will provide care and support to meet your immediate health and wellbeing needs. They will also be able to look for and collect evidence, that can assist a police investigation, if you choose to go ahead with a forensic medical examination.
If you choose to have a medical examination, the Doctor or Nurse will explain exactly what to expect and will ensure that you are kept in control every step of the way. Nothing will happen unless you give consent and feel comfortable to go ahead.
