Needle and Syringe Exchange
Reducing the spread of blood borne viruses and the associated harms of intraveneous drug are the underpinning principles of the Needle and Syringe Exchange.
A harm reduction initiative working with injecting drug users to ensure the risk of harm caused by injecting drug use is minimised both for the local community and the drug user. If you use the service for the first time be prepared to answer some basic questions relating to your drug use. This information is confidential and is used to ensure you receive the best service for your needs as well ensuring our organisation is acting responsibly.
Exchange times are:
Monday 3:30pm - 6:00pm
Tuesday 09:00 - 12 noon
Wednesday 5:00 pm - 7:00pm
Friday 09:00am - 10:00 am
Where possible we can arrange to provide an exchange outside of these times but you will need to call the office first to ensure we are available.
