Abortion services will be rolled out across the country from today, following last year's referendum and change to legislation.

Women can now access an abortion here under specific circumstances, through GPs, family planning services, in maternity units and hospitals.

Women in crisis will also be able to get help by phone.

It will be staffed by councillors and nurses and according to the Minister for Health Simon Harris, it's "where a woman can reach out and get advice on all of her options, including abortion services.

"We're taking about a situation whereby you can have consultation with your doctor who can inform you of all of your options.

He added, "we're talking about many many locations around the country where you will be able to access services. This is a very significant day for women's healthcare."
