Ectopic Pregnancy Foundation

The Ectopic Pregancy Foundation (EPF) is a charity organisation set up by a group of National Health Service (NHS) doctors to help give advice about this distressing condition that affects up to 1 in 100 pregnancies. We provide advice for both the medical profession and the general public, in the form of the website and a 24 hour telephone advice line. The EPF needs funds to support its activity and ambitions. Funding is required for hosting the website, providing the 24 hour patient helpline, mailshots to A&E departments, equipment to train gynaecologists in managing ectopic pregnancies and administrative support to run the organisation. All the trustees, faculty and international resident advisors are honorary and receive no financial reward and give their time freely. We do not have any governmental support. Mr Laurie Montgomery Irvine, founder and honory chief executive.
