Myth-Busting Monday (a.k.a Tardy Tuesday): Does your GP need to know about your abortion?

Every Monday (or in this case, Tuesday- oops!) EFC busts myths and take names, cutting through the misinformation, disinformation, and straight up nonsense to bring you the facts.

You can get a referral for abortion at places other than your GP. If you are under 25, you can go to Brook or another young person’s contraceptive and sexual health clinic in your area; for women of all ages family planning clinics offer abortion referral. In some areas, women can ring up and book themselves in for an appointment to request an abortion referral directly from the abortion provider. If you don’t want information about your abortion being sent back to your GP to add to your medical records, you can request to keep the procedure confidential.
