Even abortion clinics move and change location if necessary.

 in The Telegraph headlined “Abortion protesters force British clinic to close – but no one will say where- The British Pregnancy Advisory Service has claimed that ‘intimidating protesters’ have forced an unnamed abortion clinic in the UK to close”

It would have been more accurate to say the clinic has to move. Demand will be reducing as there are fewer teenage pregnancies – good news – but there are still plenty of accidents in the older woman.. (Teenage pregnancy in England and Wales at lowest rate ..) We should never ration abortion..

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
