Termination of Pregnancy (Abortion) Service
This service is starting in December 2021
Need to consider your pregnancy options?
If you are pregnant and worried, you are not alone, we are here to help.
We are a holistic service based at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals for women stressed by an unwanted pregnancy who wish to discuss their options.
We pride ourselves on providing high quality care before, during and after treatment and make sure that you have enough support to help you to make the decision that is best for you.
We will support you every step of the way.
What is a Termination of Pregnancy and what are my treatment options?
A termination of pregnancy (TOP) is also known as an abortion. It is the process that brings an end to a pregnancy. This can be done with either medication or surgery.
Legally this can be requested before 24 weeks of pregnancy. Two doctors need to agree that a TOP would cause less damage to your physical or mental health than continuing with the pregnancy.
Your treatment options are based on the age of your pregnancy and your personal preferences. The majority of TOPs are managed with medical treatment.
At Royal Preston Hospital (RPH) we can offer you treatment up to 11 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy. If your pregnancy is over 12 weeks you will be provided with contact details of an alternative clinic that will be able to provide your care.
