bpas (British Pregnancy Advisory Service) is Britain's largest single abortion provider, caring for over 55,000 women each year. We also provide pregnancy testing, contraception, sterilisation and vasectomy in over 50 consultation centres and clinics located throughout the UK.
bpas supports reproductive choice and health by advocating and providing high quality, affordable services to help women and men prevent unwanted pregnancies with contraception or end them by abortion. We can also help women who have decided to terminate a pregnancy following a diagnosis of fetal anomaly.
bpas offers a range of other reproductive health services, including an online service offering STI testing, emergency contraception, and 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.
bpas is committed to education, research and the development of good practice. We play a significant role in providing accurate, up-to-date information and informed comment on sexual health to Parliamentarians, policy makers, journalists, opinion-formers and researchers.

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas) welcomes the findings of The Morning After: A Cross-Party Inquiry Into Unplanned Pregnancy. Bpas is particularly pleased that the report emphasises the needs of older women and their partners who are trying to avoid unplanned pregnancy in addition to recommendations to support younger women and men.
An investigation is to be carried out following the death of a woman in an Irish hospital after she was denied an abortion. Doctors apparently refused to perform a termination on the woman, who was suffering a miscarriage, because a foetal heartbeat was still present. She subsequently developed septicaemia and died.
