Updates to the service:

  • At the moment, only our Birkenhead hub is open.

  • Our opening hours are 9:00 - 17:00 from Monday to Friday.
  • To help you stay safe, we are changing the way we prescribe medication for a while. Please take a look at our prescriptions info page to see what’s happening. If you have any questions about this, give us a call.
  • Our groups won’t be running for a while. You can find online groups and support options on our info page.
  • Needle exchange and naloxone are both available at the Birkenhead hub from 9:00 - 17:00. 
  • If you're new to the service, we can do assessments over the phone.

This info is correct as of 7 July 2020. The info below this section applies when the service is running normally. We know this is a difficult time, but it won’t be like this forever.
