Treatment

The vast majority of symptoms of child abuse can be treated by medical professionals who we will instruct to obtain evidence in support of your child abuse claim.

If you have not yet decided whether you intend to make a child abuse claim, treatment for your symptoms are available on the NHS if you arrange a confidential appointment with your GP.  Remember that your GP will keep everything you tell them absolutely confidential so you can undergo the necessary treatment without fear of anything unexpected happening.
