Coming to a station soon, new safety needles

Needle image

Safety needle options have been reviewed to replace current intra-muscular needles for use across the service to help reduce needle stick injuries.

The new needle will be available in the same sizes used currently but once the injection has been administered the protected cover will be clipped over the needle to ensure the user's safety before putting it in a sharps container.

There is no requirement for any specific training, however, instructions for use will be uploaded on the East24 and posters sent to all stations.

Please approach your DLO who will be able to assist with any questions.
