NHS Sexual Assault Response Coordination Service (SARCS) – Cool2Talk

If you have been raped or sexually assaulted within the last 7 days and do not want to tell the police, or are unsure about telling them now, you can self-refer to a SARCS. This means you don’t need a GP or other healthcare professional to refer you to a SARCS – you can do this yourself.

You can phone a dedicated NHS telephone number 0800 148 88 88 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and speak to a specially trained healthcare professional who can help to arrange the care you might need.  

This is available to under 16 year olds as well as older young people and adults

You can find more information about how to self-refer to a SARCS on the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot/sarcs
