The Care Quality Commission registers services based on the regulated activities that they carry out.

The number of active locations with the regulated activity of ‘Termination of Pregnancies’ rated Inadequate for safety is 9 (3.75%). The number rated as Requires Improvement for safety is 121 (59.3%).

Locations registered to carry on this regulated activity may not provide this activity exclusively.
