Daniel Kawczynski – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Daniel Kawczynski on 2014-06-11.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many HSA4 certificates his Department has returned to terminating doctors pending completion in the last five years.

Jane Ellison

It is estimated that between 2009 and 2013 approximately 49,000 forms were returned to registered medical practitioners (RMPs) for further information and clarification.

Form HSA4 already requires information to be provided as to whether the two certifying RMPs saw and/or examined the pregnant woman.
