Views from the forum on performing terminations

- I have never worked in this field but, for suitably trained nurses, why not? It is no different from being a nurse endoscopist. It is the same principle – an invasive procedure with the patient under anaethestic. nloup

- If this is kept within a field where you would expect to undertake such activity, presumably you have already considered your ethical stance. I wouldn’t expect to work on an orthopaedic ward and be asked to perform a termination and be told it was part of the job. However, if I worked in gynaecology then I might well expect it to be part of the job. Chestnut

- I fully support the idea of nurses doing medical terminations. Whether I would want them to do a dilation and curettage is another matter. jjjez
