Coronavirus – Information on what services are currently available – from 23rd March 2020

Due to the Covid 19 virus some of our services have changed - up to date information is on this page

Please do not attend any Unity service if you think you might have coronavirus.

Stay at home if you have either:

  • A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

If you have either of these symptoms, do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. Please only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

    If you’re pregnant and considering an abortion we are here to help and can give you advice and support.

    This number is available 24 hours a day. You can make the call yourself or someone else can make the call on your behalf.

    • The staff will ask you for your name and address and your GP details (if you have one). They will make an appointment for you to have either a telephone or face to face appointment to discuss your options.

    If you are having difficulty reaching a decision we can give you accurate information about how many weeks pregnant you are and your options.

    • If you are under 18 years old you will need to identify a supporting adult (someone who is over 18) to support you during the abortion process. If you don’t have someone to ask, do not delay in making an appointment. Staff will help you plan your abortion.

    If you’re pregnant and considering abortion, you are not alone.

    1 in 3 UK women will have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old.
