Needle and Syringe Provision

It is good practise to ensure systems are in place for people who inject substances to have access to needle and syringe programmes (NSP) also known as needle exchanges these services should be nearby, have suitable opening hours and provide injecting equipment and advice on reducing the risk of harm.

An aim of NSP’s are to reduce the transmission of blood-borne viruses and other infections caused by sharing injecting equipment, such as HIV, Hepatitis B & C. In turn, this will help to reduce the prevalence of blood-borne viruses and bacterial infections, so benefiting our wider society.

Needle exchange programmes also aim to reduce other harms caused by drug use and include:

  • Advice on minimising the harms caused by drugs.
  • Help to stop using drugs by providing appropriate referrals to specialist substance support services.
  • Access to other health and welfare services.

We encourage you to dispose of your used equipment safely and responsibly by returning your equipment to your local needle exchange.
