Termination of pregnancy

What we do

Our clinic offers a full pregnancy termination service to NHS patients and we are NHS accredited as young person-friendly. All women are counselled, scanned, consented and pre-assessed by our team, which includes specialist nurses and a gynaecology consultant.

We carry out:

  • early medical terminations where patients take the medication in the hospital and abort at home
  • first and second trimester terminations under local and general anaesthesia.

We also accept referrals from across England and Wales for women who have medical problems which make them unsuitable for treatment in the charitable sector.

Preparing for your appointment

Please do not bring children with you to your appointment as you may be at the clinic for up to three hours.

If you are running late for your appointment, please ring our Main Reception number. We can only see a limited number of patients a day and you may need to rebook.
