About the role

The Paediatric SOE will be responsible for provision of ad hoc acute examinations and scheduled historic clinic examinations of children and young people who may have suffered sexual abuse/assault (approximately 2-3 clinics per month). This will involve working together with paediatrically trained Sexual Offence Examiner, Paediatricians and Specialist Nurses.

For all examinations the Paediatric SOE must accurately document findings and arrange appropriate follow-up and onward referral enabling appropriate ongoing care of the individual. If required the Paediatric SOE must produce a written statement/report for appropriate civil, criminal courts or other agencies. Whenever called upon to do so by the Police, the Paediatric SOE must attend at any Court (remunerated by the CPS) for the purpose of giving evidence.

The service runs five days per week for the area of Devon. In the event of an acute examination call out the post holder will be expected to arrive at the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) or other venue within an ‘appropriate time’ as agreed with the Police and patient. This is seen as preferential to a specified response time as it takes into account the child/young person’s needs, the Police investigation and travel times within the county.
