Abortion Clinic- BPAS
If you are pregnant and considering abortion, it’s important to know that you are not alone. 1 in 3 UK women will have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old.
Nearly all the women who are seen at BPAS are funded by the NHS.
Your GP or family planning service can make an appointment for you or you can make an appointment by yourself by calling 03457 30 40 30.
BPAs help thousands of women with unplanned pregnancy counselling, and abortion treatment every year. BPAs will make sure that you have enough support to help you decide if abortion, adoption or parenting is right for you.
Most women they see want a termination and do not need counselling- BPA make sure they are treated quickly, safely and conveniently.
Other women who are undecided about their next step, can talk about the pregnancy through counselling. 10-15% of women who approach BPAs decide to continue their pregnancy.
This service is a safe and legal way to end a pregnancy at an early gestation without needing to attend a clinic for treatment. You should contact BPAs on their bookings and information line (number above) to book a telephone consultation and full medical assessment with a trained nurse or midwife who will assess your suitability for treatment.
Most women are eligible for NHS funded treatment and we can discuss whether this applies to you when you call. If treatment is suitable and safe, you will receive abortion pills by post a few days later, or we can book you for an alternative treatment in clinic.
You will have your consultation and medical assessment over the telephone and have opted for remote abortion pill treatment (pills by post).
