Surgical abortion

Surgical abortion is provided up to 22 week’s gestation from our Brisbane clinic.

If you require financial support to access services, including travel subsidy support, please let our contact centre staff member know when you call. Our funding team can assess your requirements and support you.

Referral pathways

We continue to build pathways with providers in Townsville and support the development of local capacity to deliver abortion care.  If you require a surgical abortion and cannot be supported by us, we will work with public hospitals to connect you to care, wherever we can.
