Choice of procedure urged for women to terminate their pregnancy

All women should be able to access both medical and surgical procedures to terminate their pregnancy, says NICE in draft guidance.

Developed with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), the draft guideline aims to improve the organisation of termination of pregnancy services and make it easier for women to access them.

This includes aiming to provide women with an initial appointment within 1 week of requesting one and undertaking the procedure within 1 week of the appointment.
