I need an appointment to discuss abortion?

If you do not want to continue the pregnancy or if it is not possible for you to have the baby, BPAS is the Abortion provider in Buckinghamshire

To book an appointment to discuss an abortion ring the BPAS Action Line 03457 30 40 30. You do not need to be referred. The bSHaW service is unable to provide abortion services.

All of your treatment will be completely free and confidential, even if you are under 16.

If you’re pregnant and considering abortion it’s important to know that you’re not alone. 1 in 3 women in the UK will have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old.

Abortion is legal up to 24 weeks of pregnancy but the earlier you contact services, the more choices you have available to you. It is also possible to refer yourself to a private clinic and pay to have an abortion.

In most cases abortion will be carried out as a day procedure. However, often you may need to attend more than one appointment at the clinic. You may need to attend an initial appointment where you will be given the chance to talk through the procedure and your choices. The procedure may then be carried out on a different day.

There are two types of abortion, medical and surgical. Which type you have may be dependant on how advanced your pregnancy is, amongst other things.

Where can I get further information?
