Abortion Care Services during COVID-19- Homerton and BPAS

Both services have implemented the following changes:

Switch to telephone consultation for first appointments

Milepristone can now lawfully both be taken at home- following a change in legislation- and so some patients will not need to attend in person at all. 

Service no longer performing dating scans and only scanning if there is an indication

Surgical option continues to be available

Patients will be invited for face-to-face appointments as necessary with all required precautions taken. 

The Homerton and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) provide Abortion Care Services for termination of pregnancies. This includes advice to women who have not yet decided.
