Termination of pregnancy survey - patients

Closes 31 Jul 2017

Opened 16 Jun 2017

Overview

Termination of pregnancy is another way of saying abortion. We mean the medical process of ending an unwanted pregnancy. This can be done by either taking medication (a pill) or having a minor surgical procedure.

It's very common. In the UK, one in three women will choose to have a termination in their lifetime. This service is provided by the NHS, which supports the right to choose.

At the moment, people who want a termination ring the central booking service and then discuss the options with a healthcare professional. If you decide to have a termination, then you will be referred to Marie Stopes or BPAS. This is all confidential.

Why are we doing this survey?

We want to understand your experience of using termination of pregnancy services. We will use your feedback to make sure that the services we develop in the future meet the needs of everyone in Camden.
