Abortion clinic Townsville
Marie Stopes Australia’s abortion clinic Townsville provides caring and non-judgemental abortion services and sexual and reproductive healthcare to Australian women and men each year.
The Marie Stopes’ Townsville abortion clinic is proudly pro-women and pro-choice. Marie Stopes’ clinics are the leading providers of sexual and reproductive health, with quality and safety our top priorities. We believe in comprehensive healthcare and along with our abortion services we provide decision-based counselling, post-abortion contraception and 24-hour nurse aftercare. Our doctors, nurses and admin staff are trained to provide professional, caring and skilled work. They are passionate and ensure that we provide client-centred care. This is why we have recently received 7 Met with Merit ratings by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS).
Townsville women can access our medical abortion or surgical abortion services without the need of a GP referral.
Our Townsville abortion clinic provides both medical abortion and surgical abortion along with decision-based counselling, post-procedure contraception and 24-hour aftercare. We understand that some women may not be able to access the clinic, however. This is why we offer another option, tele-abortion. This safe alternative is a medical abortion with a consultation via telephone that provides a safe and private way for an early medical abortion.
