Will anyone be told I am having an abortion?

Our services are confidential. We will not tell your parents or carers about your abortion. We will never force you to tell them. We do encourage you to tell a parent or other adult who can support you through this process. This could be a friend, family member, social worker or anyone else over 18 who you trust.

We will not tell your GP about your abortion unless you want us to.

If you tell us something that suggests you or someone else may be at risk of harm, we may have to talk to other professionals to make sure you are safe. We have a duty of care to do this. We will tell you if we need to do this and why.
