Your choice, our support
Abortion treatment is an essential clinical service, and it is vitally important that women are as able as ever to access our services during the ongoing healthcare crisis.
Our telemedicine service is fully operational – patients who are eligible for this service can choose to have their medication delivered via post, or can collect it from one of our clinics. This service is available for all of our patients, free of charge. Patients who not eligible for this service (i.e. those with safeguarding or more complex clinical needs) are still able to receive face-to-face care at a clinic of their choosing.
Our clinics in Bournemouth and Poole are open and running as normal, offering face-to-face abortion care and support. We have robust COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures in place to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible: https://www.msichoices.org.uk/news/coronavirus-covid-19-statement-1/ Government advice states that NHS appointments should still go ahead wherever possible.
The first step is to call the central booking service, on 0300 456 2217. Patients can call this line to talk through their options, book treatment or receive specialist clinical advice from our nursing team – alternatively patients can contact us via webchat at https://www.msichoices.org.uk/
Patients do not need a referral from their GP to access our services. Patients can self-refer for treatment by calling our team directly.
We aim to provide initial consultations within 48 hours, and have been able to maintain short waiting times with availability of appointments in all of our clinics.
We are CCG funded, which means that patients can access our treatment free of charge. A full list of our clinic locations can be found here: https://www.msichoices.org.uk/find-us/
