Needle Exchange (Hadden Street)
The usual manner in which people can access our Hadden Street needle exchange has now changed. On entering from Exchange Street, please READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS. You will be seen as soon as possible by a worker, who will ask precautionary questions relative to the signs and symptoms of coronavirus. You will then be provided with the equipment you require. We ask that you take enough clean works away with you as needed for a reasonable period of time (and also return used works to us in a cin bin).
If you are unable to attend needle exchange, phone our Helpline on 01224 594700 or 07927 192706 and we can discuss getting equipment out to you.
