Unplanned pregnancy and abortion

There are changes to the way abortion services are provided in the UK, to reduce the risk of Coronavirus spreading from person to person.

  • Making a decision: family doctors, sexual health clinic staff and abortion services can help you to discuss your options, to help make a choice that is right for you
  • You can refer yourself to an abortion service directly, by phone or online
  • British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS)
  • Marie Stopes UK
  • National Unplanned Pregnancy Advisory Service (NUPAS)
  • You can also be referred to an abortion clinic by your family doctor or sexual health clinic – please phone or contact the service online
  • If you are entitled to NHS treatment, you will not need to pay
  • If you are less than 10 weeks pregnant (12 weeks in Scotland), tablets for a home medical abortion can be posted to you after a telephone consultation
  • If you are more than 10 weeks pregnant, if medical abortion at home is not suitable, or you need an operation, you will be invited to a clinic
  • For choices of future contraception, please see What’s right for me?
  • Please see further information about abortion
  • Contact your GP or sexual health clinic by phone or online
  • A clinic appointment will be arranged for anyone who needs to be seen
  • It is important not to travel to a GP surgery, clinic or hospital unless you are asked to
