Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Domestic violence (DV) is prevalent in the UK. There are no national recommendations for assessment of DV in genitourinary (GU) medicine clinics. Bournemouth GU medicine clinic has a referral pathway for victims of DV. A postal questionnaire survey was carried out to determine whether GU medicine clinics across England and Wales had local policies in place to assess DV and also to establish their views on routine assessment of DV within GU medicine. The response rate was 53%. Most clinics had access to patient literature. Only 20% of the clinics had a policy in place to assist victims of DV. Although over 50% agreed that routine assessment for DV should happen in GU medicine clinics, only 11% clinics routinely asked about DV.
