Sexual Assault Treatment Unit (SATU)

A Rotunda Initiative.  The Sexual Assault Treatment Unit (SATU) was established in 1985, and was the first dedicated unit of its kind in Europe.

It has gained international recognition as a centre of excellence, based on the extensive expertise that the unit holds in the medical and forensic treatment of those who have been subject to sexual crime and also in recognition of the training programmes, both basic and advanced, that are facilitated by the unit.
