Self – Referral
For Termination of Pregnancy into BPAS
The KCCG has made the decision to enable self-referral into BPAS for termination of pregnancy. This means that women can go directly to BPAS or as a GP you can sign post them to the service without being a part of the referral process, ie not providing a signature.
Women can have their consultation in person or over the telephone so that they can just travel for treatment.
BPAS also provide simultaneous use of the 2 parts of EMA which also reduces the number of times a woman needs to travel.
BPAS provides terminations up to 12 weeks at their clinic in Plymouth and they are a KCCG provider for terminations 14-24 weeks gestation at clinics in Bournemouth, Leamington Spa, London, Portsmouth.
The Plymouth clinic is open:
Wednesday and Thursday evenings - consultations and Early Medical Abortion to 10 weeks gestation.
Saturdays – local anaesthetic surgical procedures up to 12 weeks gestation.
The free telephone number for women to call BPAS is 03457 30 40 30 and is open 24 hours.
