Is an abortion consultation necessary if I already know what I want to do?

Yes, the abortion consultation is a legal requirement of offering abortion care. You will have a consultation with a clinician before treatment is offered. This can be face-to-face, or over the phone. If you are under 16 years old you will be seen within one of our clinics.

The clinician will talk to you about your medical history to find the best treatment options for you. They explain what an abortion involves, including possible risks and complications so that you can consent to treatment. They will also answer any questions you may have.
