King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,600 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London and Kent.
The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup.
The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, fetal medicine, stroke, major trauma, and Emergency Department.
The Havens are London’s Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) based in Camberwell, Paddington and Whitechapel. We support victims of sexual assault in the immediate aftermath of rape, from forensic evidence and medico-legal work through sexual health, counselling, psychology, advocacy and other specialist support.
We have a strong partnership with the Metropolitan Police Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command but we also provide the full range of support services to clients who choose not to report to police.
The major responsibility of the post-holder will be to carry out forensic medical examinations to survivors of rape/sexual assault who either self-refer or are referred via the police or other agencies.
The post holder will undertake sexual offence examiner clinical duties, which will include providing a forensic medical examination to victims of sexual assault, some of whom present with complex needs and may be very traumatised. Forensic medical examinations must be carried out in a manner which minimises further distress. These are detailed, lengthy examinations, which must meet strict standards in terms of recording information, sample collection and handling, and avoiding DNA contamination. Subsequently a Summary of the Forensic Record or a Witness Statement is requested by the police for approximately a third of examinations and the post-holder will be required to attend court to give evidence in about 5 - 10% of cases
The majority of our clients are women and of those clients who expressed a preference for gender of staff at time of forensic examination, the majority said that they would prefer to see a female. For this reason this post is open to female applicants only in order to preserve privacy and dignity as covered by the Equality Act 2010 Part 1 Schedule 9.
