Abortion care in Somerset: expanding access to women in the area

News from MSI UK  •  31 March 2021  • 4 min read



MSI Reproductive Choices is now able to offer abortion care to patients in Somerset, expanding access to timely and quality care via telemedicine and face-to-face appointments.

Reproductive rights are human rights and the cornerstone of gender equality. This includes the right to have control over and decide freely and responsibly on matters related to sexuality, free from coercion, discrimination and violence.

MSI Reproductive Choices is one of the leading independent providers of sexual and reproductive health services in the UK, offering NHS-funded (as well as private) abortion and vasectomy treatments through their network of more than 60 local clinics all over England.

At-home abortion pills: Telemedicine and “pills by post”

Abortion is a common medical procedure: in the UK, one in three women will have an abortion by the time they are 45. 

We offer medical and surgical abortions in our clinics all over England, including free counselling to anyone who would like to talk through their options and their emotions. 

In response to the current Covid 19 pandemic, the government has approved the use of telemedicine for early medical abortion care, which means that eligible patients are able to take both pills in their own homes, without attending a clinic. As a result, thousands of women have been able to access the timely, high quality care they deserve without to make unnecessary journeys to a clinic.  

Remember: you don’t need a GP referral to access NHS-funded abortion care. You can simply get in touch with an abortion provider of your choice and book a phone consultation. Follow this link for a useful read on how to choose the right abortion provider for you.  

Our clinics remain available for patients who need or prefer face-to-face care. Somerset patients will be able to access our Community Treatment Centres in: 

Surgical abortion available in our Bristol Treatment Centre

For pregnancies over the 10 weeks limit needed to access a medical abortion, patients will be able to access our Regional Treatment Centre in Bristol

MSI Reproductive Choices has over 60 clinics across England, and our London treatment centres are available for anyone preferring this option.
