Workload and conscientious objectors are some of the issues being discussed

An extraordinary general meeting of the Irish College of General Practitioners will take place today over abortion services.

The meeting was convened to address concerns by members regarding the implementation of the new service, due in January.

The ICGP says their position has been clear that it favours an opt-in service for GPs.

The organisation says the purpose of the meeting is to consult with members and enable debate.
