About British Pregnancy Advisory Service

If you discover that you have a pregnancy that you feel you are unable to continue with, we will be here to support you to make a decision that is right for you.

We are an independent healthcare charity which for more than 50 years, has been advocating and caring for women and couples who decide to end a pregnancy.

Nearly all of the women we see have their care paid for by the NHS. We are the leading specialists of abortion advice and treatment in the UK, taking care of almost 80,000 women each year in over 70 reproductive healthcare clinics nationwide.

"BPAS exists to further women’s reproductive choices. We believe all women should have the right to make their own decisions in and around pregnancy, from the contraception they use to avoid pregnancy right the way through  to how they decide to feed their newborn baby, with access to evidence-based information to underpin their choices and high quality services and support to exercise them." Clare Murphy, Chief Executive

Advocating high quality affordable services

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) is committed to protecting and extending women’s reproductive rights and choices.

We believe women are best placed to make their own decisions about contraception, pregnancy, abortion and birth.

Women deserve evidence-based information on which to make their choices and we campaign for comprehensive reproductive healthcare services to enable them to exercise those choices.

Supporting pregnancy choices. Trusting women to decide.

Providing contraception and abortion services

We have grown over the 50 years we have been in existence to provide abortion services across England, Scotland and Wales. In addition to abortion advice and treatment we provide pregnancy testing, counselling, Sexually Transmitted Infection screening, contraception, and vasectomy through our network of reproductive healthcare centres.

We also provide specialist contact centre services to the NHS such as Central Booking Services to speed up access to abortion treatment across a range of NHS and agency providers. In addition, we offer online STI testing, online treatment and advice for erectile dysfunction.

Our service is respected for its quality of care, delivered by highly trained staff who are sensitive and non judgemental. View the latest job vacancies at BPAS.
