A hospital in Luton has launched an internal review following reports that an NHS nurse allegedly rang the relative of a teenage girl who had been admitted to hospital with complications following an abortion.

According to reports, the 16-year-old girl was thrown out of her home when her devoutly Catholic mother was informed of her decision to have a termination.

The nurse, said to be a friend of the girl’s aunt, allegedly placed the call when the teenager was taken to hospital suffering from side-effects of the procedure. Luton and Dunstable Hospital said it was reviewing the circumstances of the case.
