Pregnant and not sure what to do?

Deciding to have an abortion can be a difficult decision to make. Talking through the options with a doctor or nurse at a contraception and sexual health clinic can help you to reach your decision. Please see above for online or telephone booking. Alternatively you can self-refer to the Central Booking Manchester for abortion counselling. You won’t have to wait long for a consultation – normally less than a week. Central Booking Manchester.
