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 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.

'I cannot commend the clinic enough. It is marvellous we
have this service at all and well done to you all.'
