The campaign

Doctors for Choice UK is launching a campaign to #KeepTelemedicine. 

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the use of telephones and video calls for medical consultations. It allows women and pregnant people to access medical abortion under 10 weeks of pregnancy without attending a clinic.

Key points 

1 / Telemedicine is safe and effective

2 / Telemedicine lowers waiting times and gestation at which abortion takes place

3 / Telemedicine is cost-effective for patients and the NHS

4 / Telemedicine improves privacy and access

5 / Telemedicine is empowering!


Listen to our new podcast, with committee members Sean and Tom speaking to abortion providers about their experience of setting up telemedicine services.
