We understand that confidentiality is important to you.

All information about you will be held in complete confidence unless there are concerns regarding child protection or abuse of a vulnerable adult. In such cases we have a responsibility to share some information with other agencies such as social care in order to help keep children and vulnerable adults safe.

If you have reported the assault to the police and the investigation results in a prosecution, your medical notes may be requested by the court and the doctor could be asked to write a statement.
