Abortion care

This information is for you if you are considering having an abortion. It tells you:

  • how you can access abortion services
  • the care you can expect to receive
  • the different abortion procedures you may be offered.

These recommendations apply to all abortion services in the UK.

This information aims to help you and your healthcare team make the best decisions about your care. It may help you in deciding whether abortion is right for you. It is not meant to replace advice from a doctor or nurse about your own situation.

Some of the recommendations here may not apply to you; this could be because of an illness or condition you have, your general health, your wishes, or some or all of these things. If you think the treatment or care you get does not match what we describe here, talk about it with your doctor or with someone else in your healthcare team.
