Although our iCaSH services do not provide termination of pregnancy or abortion services, our staff are able to offer confidential advice and help you make the best decision for you.
Marie Stopes UK offer medical and surgical abortion following a consultation appointment. Following a recent Care Quality Commission inspection, Marie Stopes has decided to:
- suspend termination of pregnancy provision for under 18s and vulnerable groups of women
- suspend terminations under general anaesthetic or conscious sedation
- suspend all surgical terminations at its Norwich centre.
Marie Stopes is working urgently with the CQC to regain full assurance. In the meantime, a confidential helpline has been set up for anyone with concerns or questions or who needs help to find alternative abortion providers on 0300 123 1041 (9am to 5pm at the weekends and 9am to 8pm during the week).
