Syringe and Needle Exchange Programme

Herefordshire Community Safety and Drugs Partnership (HCSDP) working together with DASH (Drug and Alcohol Service Herefordshire) has commissioned a service to deliver a needle and syringe programme at community pharmacies in Ledbury, Ross, Hereford City, Kington and Leominster.

These programmes are designed to reduce the spread of Hepatitis, HIV and bacterial infections and promote the health and welfare of injecting drug users.

Pharmacists can provide harm reduction advice around safer injecting, overdose prevention and assist service users to remain healthy until they are able to access mainstream support services to ultimately achieve a drug-free life.
