Description

If you have been sexually assaulted, we are here to help you.

The Cambridge Clinic is a non-judgemental service for absolutely everyone, regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, or residential status. 
 
We know what happened to you is not your fault and you are not alone. Our doctors and nurses are highly trained to provide specialised care and support for anyone who has been sexually abused recently, or in the past.
 
With compassion, confidentiality and absolutely no judgement, our team provides sexual assault medical and forensic care. At the Cambridge Clinic, you are in control every step of the way. We can help you make an informed choice about whether you want to involve the police. As well as medical services such as emergency contraception and pregnancy testing, and STI screening, prevention and treatment, we can also provide you with practical and emotional support. If you need support or assistance beyond what we offer, we will refer you to other agencies that can help you.
