How much does the NHS pay BPAS?

Based on data published in its 2020 financial statement,[1] BPAS was paid £37 million by the NHS, largely for its provision of abortion services; the average fee per abortion was approximately £425.

We note that BPAS provides other reproductive health services for which it is paid by the NHS, so this calculation is an estimate, simply dividing total fee income by the reported number of abortions. However, the numbers above are consistent with contractual fees reported by three Clinical Commissioning Groups under freedom of information.
