If you can’t travel for an appointment because of Covid-19 restrictions

Free EMA pills are available by post for pregnancies under 10 weeks

                                                                 Your suitability will be assessed by a doctor in NI. If eligible, a booking will be made for a telephone consultation and medical assessment. Following your telephone consultation, your treatment pills will be delivered to you. If necessary, the doctor may have to refer you to a local treatment centre in the North instead.

*For Early Medical Abortion (EMA) service for pregnancies 10-12 weeks.

As EMA services for pregnancies of 10-12 weeks are not currently being provided in the North, you will need to contact BPAS if you can travel to England.                    Contact: 0333 2342184 to make an appointment with a funded abortion provider.    To qualify for FREE care/travel: you must reside in N.Ireland with a BT postcode, and be registered with a GP in the North with a BT postcode.

For Abortion services for pregnancies 12 weeks onwards.
