Update training for Supervised Consumption Scheme and the Needle & Syringe Provision Scheme

18th November 2018 7pm for light buffet

Town Hall, Erme Court, Leonards Road, Ivybridge PL21 0SZ

Public Health would like to invite you come to an evening to look at the community pharmacy supervised consumption and needle and syringe provision.

The events will be led by a pharmacist, the new Together Drug & Alcohol Service, the commissioners and the new needle and syringe provider, Orion Medical. The training will focus on harm reduction as, nationally and locally, there is an increasing number of drug related deaths and an increased complexity in our injecting drug-using population. The session will also cover best practice to improve engagement with some of the most socially excluded people in Devon and Torbay. The intention is to have a mix of presentations with practical discussions and Q&As.
