People who inject drugs can cause themselves harm from the injecting process. You’re less likely to cause harm if you are using the right equipment and disposing of it safely after each use.
New Milton Pharmacy offers a needle exchange service that provides you with free injecting equipment, to make sure that if you are injecting, that you’re safe and doing so safely. You can get different sizes of syringes and needles, citric acid and filters. Equipment may come in a ready-made pack, or sometimes you can ask for exactly what you need. You will be expected to return used needles back to the pharmacy in the container provided to you.
The pharmacist will also be able to talk to you about how you can reduce the risk of harm when injecting.
This service reduces the risk of you catching infections, such as HIV and Hepatitis B & C, provides you with information on how to inject more safely, and keeps the community safe by encouraging you to return used needles.
You can come in and speak to one of our dedicated team of staff or pharmacists in private for more information. You can also contact us using the ‘Contact’ page on this website or email us on email@example.com for more information and how we can help. If you wish, you can call us on 01425 613 971 to discuss this with our Pharmacists.
