Naloxone Activity & Outcomes
For every £1 spent on Naloxone there is a saving of £24.60 to the health economy.
In just over 18 months 233+ lives and over £700,000 has been saved!
Over 3000 service users, families, carers and appropriate others (hostel workers, family support staff) have been trained in overdose prevention and the administration of Naloxone and given a one-time Naloxone injection kit in the last 18 months across our sites nationally.
Birmingham prison who piloted the prison element of the project have so far trained over 70 prisoners in 2016
Our Naloxone protocol was published on the SMMGP web site as a good practice guide to ensure national learning and the swift adoption of the new legislation by other organisations. We welcome the fact that other organisations have adopted our protocol and are using it in practice to improve care.
