Ectopic Pregnancy Trust (The)

The EPT provides information, education and support to those whose lives are touched by early pregnancy complications and to the professionals who care for them.

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    The Trust produces a suite of patient orientated literature, designed to help those affected by the condition, with detailed information about their particular treatment and the condition in general. Our literature is widely used throughout hospitals in the UK to ensure that patients are supported and informed.

    The website provides information about the diagnosis, treatment and after-care of the condition written by medico/nursing advisors to the Trust.

    In 2002 and 2003 the website was nominated for an E-Commerce award. It was short listed for an E-Wellbeing award in 2007 and won in its category. Information designed by The Trust is recommended by health information gateways as a source of good quality health information including amongst others, NHS Direct.

    The Trust regularly provides medical information to local and national newspapers and leading women’s magazines on the subject of ectopic pregnancy. TV Programmes such as This Morning, GMTV, BBC Health Watchdog, Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Family Affairs and That’s Esther, consult The Trust when including ectopic pregnancy in their schedules and story lines. The Trust’s patrons, volunteers, trustees and staff also participate in television and radio interviews.

    Highly successful conferences, seminars and study days for health professionals
