Needle Exchange

Needle Exchange

Needle Exchange

Those 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.

Here at Fordingbridge Chemist we offer a needle exchange service which can provide you with free injecting equipment, to make sure that if you are injecting, that you’re 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 may need to 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 further reduce the risk of harm when injecting.

Why use this service?

Using this service reduces the risk of contracting 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.

Please always feel welcome to come in and speak to one of our dedicated team of staff or pharmacists if you wish to find out more about how this service can support you. Please be assured your concerns will be dealt with a great deal of professionalism and compassionate care. 

You can also contact us using the ‘Contact’ page on this website, or by emailing us at [email protected] for more information on how we can help. 

If you wish, you can also call us on 01425 65 23 00 to discuss this privately with our pharmacists.
