Needle and Syringe Program
Free access to needles, syringes and health advice
The Needle and Syringe Program (NSP) provides clean needles, syringes, condoms and health advice for anyone in the community. Sharps safes for the safe disposal of used injecting equipment are also available, and used safes can be returned to us.
It is provided at our Doncaster East site and is available Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. No appointment necessary. Just drop by reception. Everything is provided.
Our NSP is linked to a Primary NSP at Carrington Health in Box Hill. The Primary NSP also provides an outreach service to all Eastern Suburbs called CHOPER (Community Health Outreach Program Eastern Region). It operates 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm every night of the year. To use this service call 0414 266 203.
