Before you have any treatment with us you will need to have a consultation. A member of our staff will take some details from you, including your medical history. Your treatment options will be discussed at this time.
When you contact us to make a consultation appointment, you will be given three options:
You will have the opportunity to ask any questions about your treatment and anaesthetic choices, as well as aftercare and future contraception. Throughout this initial consultation our aim will be to give you all the information and advice you need to make an informed decision about your pregnancy.
What happens on the day?
We appreciate this may be a stressful and confusing time for you and hope that you will feel supported by our care. Our aim is to respond to your needs sensitively and without being intrusive. Click on the abortion links for an explanation of each procedure.
Admission to the clinic
When you arrive at reception you will be greeted and you be asked to quote your Personal Identification Number (P.I.N) which will have been given to you when you made initial contact with the clinic. You will be asked to take a seat in the waiting room until the nurse collects you for admission to the ward. One supporter may stay with you until the nurse calls you through. You will be able to keep your mobile phone on whilst you are in the clinic so your supporter can contact you at anytime.
Please Note: If your blood group is rhesus negative, we will give you an injection called Anti-D to prevent antibodies forming against a future pregnancy.
