Needle & Syringe Program

Free needle and syringe program, available 24/7

During opening hours, our helpful and knowledgeable staff can supply a full range of injecting equipment as well as condoms and lube.

Where?

Dispensing machine

There is also a free 24-hour machine in front of the front of Kirketon Road Centre (KRC) so you can access injecting equipment outside opening hours. The machine supplies 10 x 1mL syringes, water, cotton, spoon, and swabs in a reinforced box.

Needle disposal

You can return your used sharps to KRC. There is a 24-hour disposal bin outside the building. We also collect sharps inside the KRC and Clinic 180.
