 Sexual Assault

If you believe that you may have been the victim of a sexual assault you can choose to report the incident to the police by calling 999 or 101.  

If you are not sure whether you want to report the incident you can instead contact a Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC). They provide coordinated, forensic, counselling and aftercare services to men, women and children living in Thames Valley who have experienced rape or sexual assault, recent or non-recent.

SARC Bicester Phone: 0800 970 9952   Address: Solace Centre, Police House, Queens Avenue, Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX26 2NT

You can take a friend or someone from the College Welfare Team with you, and ask the Porters for a free taxi.

 Urgent Medical Advice

If it is not an emergency, but you need urgent medical advice (or think you need to see a doctor urgently) out of working hours, you should ring 19 Beaumont Street Surgery on 01865 240501. You will be connected to the Out-of-Hours Service and a local GP will telephone you back, usually within half an hour. If you need to be seen, you will be advised to attend the Out-of-Hours Centre at Manzil Way (off Cowley Road).

In the event of an emergency please ensure you keep the college informed, so we can ensure the appropriate support is provided.
