You can attend the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) for a forensic medical examination following a sexual assault.  

A forensic exam is carried out by a specially trained doctor or nurse and these samples can be used as evidence in court if you choose to report. These samples can be stored at the SARC until you have decided on your next steps.  

SARC can also offer tests for sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy; provide emergency contraception, post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) and a Hepatitis B vaccination, following a recent sexual assault.
