Following a steep rise in cases across the region, the whole of the North East has been named as an area that will receive additional support. You can read the latest statement from LA7 leaders. There are no additional restrictions on the area or residents but with cases of Covid higher than ever before everyone is asked to continue to act carefully and responsibly. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. See Covid-19 advice and information for advice on how to stay safe. Thank you for playing your part in helping to keep the North East open and protect others.

Needles, syringes and drugs equipment

If you come across a discarded syringe or needle please report the location to us.

 Please do not attempt to pick up syringes or needles yourself.

To protect against accidental needle injury,  we will attempt to remove them within 2 hours of receiving your message. The discarded syringe will be collected in a safe storage box before being disposed of with other clinical waste.
