    Media Statement


    Our statement on CQC’s first rating of an Abortion Care service:


    Richard Bentley, Marie Stopes UK’s managing director said: 


    “This is the first time that the CQC has given a formal rating to an abortion service and we are delighted that they have awarded us a ‘Good’ rating across every category, from safety, effectiveness and care to responsiveness and leadership. We have come a long way over the past two years and this rating is tribute to the huge efforts of all our staff as well as the invaluable support of the CQC. 


    “We are particularly pleased about the way our team members have been singled out for their compassionate, welcoming and non-judgmental care. They should be extremely proud of the considerable progress that has been achieved. 


    “We are committed to getting this absolutely right and will continue learning and striving to give the 70,000 women and men we treat every year the very best care.”
