Referral for Termination

If you do not wish to continue with an unplanned pregnancy, you can come to any of our drop in clinics to discuss termination of pregnancy.

You will be asked to take a pregnancy test to confirm that you are pregnant. You will also receive advice to enable you to make an informed choice on how you want to manage your pregnancy. 

If you decide to proceed with the termination process, we will refer you and book an appointment for you at Victoria Hospital.

Please note that your initial referal appointment does NOT include the termination process.

For more information on pregnancy and termination visit www.bpas.org

Sterilisation Referral

If you would like to be referred for sterilisation please contact your GP who will refer you to the clinic. We will send you a questionnaire to fill out and give you an appointment to come for a consultation at our sterilisation assessment clinic on Tuesday afternoons. Depending on the outcome of the consultation, you will either be referred for sterilisation or another appointment will be made for you to be placed on any long acting and reversible contraceptive choice of yours.

All other planned methods of contraception can be received by making an appointment on the appointment line 01592 64 79 79
