Case examples

Attacked by a bus stop


I was on my way home close to a bus stop. I was approached by two young men. One of them asked where I was from and where I was going. At the same time they tried to reach into my pocket for my mobile phone and wallet.

When I stopped them one of them approached me from behind and started punching me. I felt severe pain in my mouth and fell to the pavement.

Sexually abused by an elder brother


During the course of a few months when I was around 9 or 10 years old, I was sexually abused by my elder brother. I kept this to myself and told my mother when I was around 13 or 14 years old.

Sexually assaulted in a bar


I was in a bar and walked up the stairs to the toilets. I was with a male friend at the time and noticed there was someone behind us. The man was walking closely behind me and touched me. I turned around and he told me I owed him a drink. I ignored him and continued walking to the Ladies toilets.

Pub doorman assaulted whilst working


I was working as a doorman at a pub. A message was passed on through the radio about a man who had been hitting his wife and to not allow him to come into the venue.

The man’s wife asked if she could come in, she was shaking, scared and crying as he was threatening to kill her. She came into the pub and the man was stopped at the door.

GP carried out an internal examination however


I attended a consultation with a locum doctor at my GP surgery regarding an existing health problem.

The GP carried out an internal examination however I had concerns about the way in which this was done. I was a student nurse at the time and felt the way the examination was carried out was unusual. I was not asked if I wanted someone with me at the time.
