The Bedford Centre is currently running a primarily telephone-based service. If a scan or a face-to-face appointment is required, this will be advised in your telephone consultation.
If it is determined that you need to attend in person, then unless you are under 16 or need a carer unfortunately your support person will need to wait outside the hospital building. This is to minimise the number of people coming in and out of the building.
The primary option offered for termination of pregnancy will be outpatient medical management. What this means for you will be discussed in your telephone consultation.
