Needle exchange service

​​What is the needle exchange service?

We offer an anonymous and confidential needle exchange programme. 

Injecting equipment is available free of charge from the Alcohol and Drug Service and the General Hospital switchboard, located to the right of the ambulance bay at the Parade entrance. 

Pharmacies who are part of the programme charge a small fee (see table below).

Who can use the service?

The service is open to anyone over the age of 18. If you are under 18 years old, you should visit the Alcohol and Drug Service to get injecting equipment.

All of the needle exchange outlets can provide you with:

  • black Fitpacks (sharp safe boxes), which contain:
