Medical Examinations & Sexual Health Screening
Archway is a specialist sexual assault referral centre based in the centre of Glasgow that provides forensic medical examinations, sexual health screening, emergency contraception, follow up support and counselling to people who have experienced recent rape or/and sexual assault.
Please note: Archway has experienced staff shortages over the last few months and is currently unable to operate on a 24/7 basis.
NHS Lanarkshire now has a service agreement with Archway and the following criteria applies to Lanarkshire residents:
You should call 0141 211 8175 if you want to make a referral.

If it is more than 7 days since the assault tool place, or you are under 16 years, you can access medical care through your local sexual health service or call 0845 618 7191
