Fewer than five terminations of pregnancy in Western Trust hospitals

Of 53 terminations of pregnancy in hospitals in the north in 2021/22 fewer than five took place in the Western Trust.

The figures are contained in the Department of Health’s latest Hospital Based Termination of Pregnancy Statistics.

“There were 53 terminations of pregnancy in HSC hospitals in Northern Ireland during 2021/22. This was 10 less than the 63 reported in 2020/21. It should be noted that due to small numbers, relatively large fluctuations may be expected from year to year,” it states.
