Help and support for emergency treatment

Clinic26 is for men who have experienced historic sexual abuse, which means it’s over 12 months since the assault took place. We cannot gather forensic evidence or provide emergency treatment for men who have experienced sexual trauma recently. If you require these services please contact The Havens (020 3299 6900) or your local emergency department.

You can also visit the NHS Choices website for information about support and services for anyone who has experienced rape or sexual assault.
