Needle exchange

Sharing needles can increase your chances of contracting a blood-borne virus (BBV) such as HIV or hepatitis. To reduce the risk of spreading these or other illnesses, some local pharmacies operate a needle exchange system. This is where needle/syringe users can swap used needles for a clean and sterile injecting equipment pack.

You can find a list of pharmacies that provide this service on the Trafford Service Directory.
