Supervised Injecting Facilities

We wrote to the Hon. Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria expressing our concern about his reluctance to provide supervised injecting facilities for drug users. Based on the proven success of such facility in Sydney and overseas in saving lives and preventing the spread of infections, this issue has the strong support of medical colleges, the police, ambulance services and the state coroner. We urge the establishment of safe injecting rooms in Victoria.

(Copy sent to Fiona Patten, whose Private Member’s Bill proposes the provision of such facilities.)
