Pregnant and unsure what to do?

We offer free pregnancy testing in all of our clinics. For some people having a positive pregnancy test can be a very happy time however we understand that this is not the case for everybody.  If you find out you're pregnant and you're not sure if you want to continue with the pregnancy or if you have already decided you would like to discuss having a termination (abortion) we can help.

All patients in County Durham and Darlington can access termination services for free. You can call the number below to book your own appointment or we can help you to do this, you do not need to be referred by your GP.

For advice, support and a consultation appointment for termination of pregnancy at Bishop Auckland, Chester-le-Street, Darlington or Durham hosptials please telephone 01388 455 333 (Monday-Friday 8am-5pm). We also offer a counselling service - contact us on 01388 455 110 (Monday-Thursday 8am-5pm).

We recommend all patients considering termination have a check up for sexual infections.  We can also discuss what kind of contraception you may like to use in future.

'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough - could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
