Consensus Statement on Best Practice

Written by Nigel Brunsdon on . Posted in .

A consensus best practice statement has been published by the UK National Needle Exchange Forum, UK Harm Reduction Alliance and Exchange Supplies in response to the increasing numbers of requests for a document to set out the principles by which needle and syringe supply should be organised.

The NNEF submitted it to the NTA in October 2006 as part of their review of harm reduction with a recommendation that they publish it, or something like it in order to ensure that there is no doubt in the minds of commissioners or providers as to what constitutes good (and bad) practice.
