Needle Exchange Service in Knowsley - Final revised.pdf - Published Version
This work was commissioned by Knowsley Council to inform the development of needle exchange (NEX) services in Knowsley and to ensure that they meet the needs of people who inject drugs (PWID) locally. The views and experiences of both service users and staff from drug services and pharmacies offering needle exchange services in Knowsley were sought regarding the extent to
which NEX are meeting the needs of PWID including their perceptions regarding the support available, NEX accessibility and service delivery. Findings are considered in the context of NICE guidelines on the optimal provision of needle and syringe programmes in England.
