Procedures for approval of independent sector providers of treatment for termination of pregnancy

February 2017

Nursing

Country of origin: UK

The 2012 Interim Procedures were updated to reflect the CQCs regulatory framework and changes to professional guidance. These procedures have now been superceded by the May 2014 procedures and all providers must comply with the new (2014) version.

The new procedures have been updated to address specific points raised about Required Standing Operating Procedures (RSOPs) as a result of the consultation on Independent abortion clinic approvals.

The RSOPs are intended for all independent sector providers of termination of pregnancy services. The previous version of the procedures were last consulted on and published in 1999. It did not reflect the changes to the CQCs regulatory framework introduced in October 2010.
