I write in response to your revised Official Information Act request, received by us on 14 April 2020, following initial request on 23 March 2020. You noted your interest in the recent changes proposed to Abortion legislation, and requested the information relating to second and third trimester abortion services.

This response covers DHB funded second and third trimester abortion services for Waitemata, Auckland and Counties Manukau DHBs. The DHBs do not hold information about private provision by other providers. It is understood that services are provided in the catchment by some private providers, but these are not DHB funded.

Some information about these services is available in the public domain through the reports of the Abortion Supervisory Committee to which you have referred in your letter.

Responses are provided below to your questions which have been copied using your numbering system. Your questions are copied below and italicized. Our response to each question follows.

The combined Regional response is attached.
