Are you injured?

It is important to consider whether or not you need to seek medical help for any injuries you may have, especially if you are bleeding or in pain. If at all possible try to find a safe place you can keep warm in. Sometimes right after an assault you may not feel pain, but this might gradually increase over the next few hours. This might be because you are in shock and can be normal reaction to what you have experienced.

You can get treated by your doctor (GP) or local Accident and Emergency Department. f you do attend hospital or your GP to have injuries treatment, are not under the age of 18 or a vulnerable adult, then the hospital or GP should not inform the police.

Some survivors have found that writing down any questions they have before they go helps. You can access healthcare without telling the doctor what has happened to you. The important thing is that you get any injuries seen to. It is understandable that you may be anxious about this. You are able to take a friend with you which may help.
