Your first visit to the private abortion clinic in London will be a simple consultation. You will discuss your options with the doctor. You will also undergo a few health checks. The doctor will explain the different termination procedures that are available and advise you on which is most appropriate for you. This can depend on your health and the length of the pregnancy. You will be able to ask any questions and to take as much time as you need to make your decision. If you decide to go ahead with the termination, you will return to the clinic or go to the hospital for the procedure.
Three different types of termination are offered by 132 Healthwise. Each of these procedures will be conducted by Mr. Stafford at The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
A medical abortion involves taking two different kinds of medication, two days apart. You will need to have two appointments at the clinic or hospital so that you can take the medication under supervision.
A surgical abortion is conducted as a day patient procedure at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. The procedure doesn’t require any incisions to be made and it will be done with just a general anaesthetic. You will need to stay in hospital for a few hours, but you should be able to go home the same day.
Manual vacuum aspiration is an alternative surgical procedure that is sometimes offered instead of the more common surgical abortion. It is also conducted at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital as a day patient procedure. You will be able to go home about an hour after the procedure.
If you are considering an abortion, a private clinic can provide the personalized care you need. You will be able to choose the clinic and doctor that you want, which can help you to feel more comfortable and in control. You will get all of the counselling and care that you need from an experienced team. You will have plenty of time to ask questions and talk with your doctor at a private clinic. You will never feel rushed. You will also have more flexibility when it comes to making appointments, so you can see your doctor and schedule the procedure at a time that is convenient for you.
Choosing a private abortion clinic can also ensure that you see a doctor as soon as possible. This is particularly important if you are nearing the time limit for the type of abortion you want. For example, if you want to have a medical abortion, you will need to have your termination before the ninth week of the pregnancy. Rather than waiting for an appointment to become available at an NHS clinic, you can arrange to see a private consultant right away.
You don't even need to wait for a referral from your GP, unless you prefer to see your family doctor first. You can make an appointment directly. You will be able to decide whether you want your notes forwarded to your GP after the procedure. It is sensible to allow the private clinic to inform your doctor, just in case you experience any complications in the future. However, the clinic will only communicate with your GP if you give permission.
If you are considering your options or you want to arrange a medical or surgical abortion, you can make an appointment for a consultation at the 132 Healthwise clinic in London. You will have a chance to discuss your options with an experienced doctor before deciding whether to have a termination.
