Last week our Engagement team welcomed John Campbell from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde who visited Bristol to deliver training around steroids, as part of the team's continued professional development.

As IPED Manager, John Campbell had adapted Needle & Syringe Programmes to better meet the needs of people who inject Image and Performance Enhancing Drugs (IPEDs), whose injecting equipment, techniques and patterns are distinct from other injecting drug users.

It was an excellent day's training. Everyone said they found it very informative and really felt comfortable with John's friendly and engaging style of training.

It was an absolute please providing this training to your staff. They’re a great bunch!

John Campbell, is a familiar face to BDP having taken part in 2016's Research Matters conference, a free event marking the anniversary of Bristol launching one of the UK's pioneering Needle Exchanges, which explored new and emerging research which can help shape drug and alcohol treatment services and reduce drug-related harm.
