Consultation on standards for healthcare & forensic medical services

Femal doctors conducting examination

Are you or is someone you know a survivor of rape, sexual assault or child sexual abuse who would like to feed into the development of standards being developed for healthcare and forensic medical services?

This is an important opportunity to shape a service vital to survivors of sexual violence. Rape Crisis Scotland will be holding consultation meetings - if you are interested in taking part in these, please email us at info@rapecrisisscotland.org.uk.

You can take part in the consultation process at https://is.gd/WGZlgY where the draft standards are available to download, and you can give your feedback via an online survey, or by completing a consultation form to return by email or post.

Further information about the consultation process can be obtained from Jim Smith, Project Officer at hcis.standardsandindicators@nhs.net telephone 0141 225 6875.

The consultation closes on Wednesday 13th September 2017.

Consultation feedback

At the end of the consultation period, all comments received on the draft standards will be collated and used to inform the development of the final standards.

The final standards, along with a summary of the responses to the consultation, will be published in December 2017 on the Healthcare Improvement Scotland website (www.healthcareimprovementscotland.org).
