Description:

The Department of Health (DH) asked the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to produce public health guidance on the optimal provision of needle and syringe programmes (NSPs) among injecting drug users. The guidance is for NHS and other professionals who have a direct or indirect role in, or responsibility for, NSPs. This includes those working in drug (and alcohol) action teams (D[A]ATs), pharmacies, local authorities and the wider public, voluntary and community sectors. It may also be of interest to people who inject illicit substances and non-prescribed drugs, their families and other members of the public.
