Working with you and your patients.

Referring your patients to our services is quick and easy.

Marie Stopes UK has been working with GPs and healthcare professionals to deliver high-quality reproductive services for more than 40 years. We provide NHS-funded and private abortion care and vasectomy services to meet your patient's individual needs.

About us

Abortion care

One in three women in the UK will choose to have an abortion by the time they are 45. More often than not, women will go to their GP for advice as a first step.

We provide NHS-funded and private abortion care up to 23 weeks and 6 days, and continually work to make the referral process as simple as possible for you and your patient. 

Find out more about your patient's abortion care options. 

Vasectomy services

Vasectomy is a quick, safe and permanent method of contraception chosen by millions of men worldwide. Men tend to seek advice directly from their GP regarding vasectomy services.

We provide NHS-funded and private vasectomy procedures in our clinics across England and have made the referral process as simple as possible for you and your patient.
