Needle & Syringe Exchange Scheme

Swindon has a needle and syringe scheme which is run through a number of participating Pharmacies as well as Turning Point (IMPACT), the local treatment service. This scheme aims to reduce the harms caused by injecting, including transmission of blood-borne viruses and other infections caused by sharing injecting equipment, through the provision of:

    • advice on safer injecting practices
    • advice on minimising the harm done by drugs, including performance and image-enhancing drugs
    • advice on how to avoid and manage an overdose including the use of Naloxone, as well as basic life support
    • information on the safe handling and correct disposal of injecting equipment
    • access to blood-borne virus testing, vaccination and treatment services
    • help to stop injecting drugs, including access to drug treatment (for example, opioid substitution therapy) and encouragement to switch to safer drug taking practices, if these are available
