    This thread gives the locations and details of NSP's in every State and Territory, the list is by no means exhaustive, but we encourage people to post up locations in this thread and a moderator will edit them into the OP when they get a chance, hopefully as time passes the list will become fairly comprehensive.

    Thanks dm

    The first four you list under Melbourne are all Inner South Community Health sites. The big one in St Kilda is the Crisis Centre at 29 Grey St - it's open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    For west side peeps there is Health Works at 4-12 Buckley St Footscray 03 9362 8100. Like Inner Space, it also has drop in and health services for people who inject drugs.

    Dandenong has SEADS at 84-88 Foster St 8792 2330

    SHARPS in Frankston: 20 Young St 03 9781 1622

    In Melb CBD you can access Foot Patrol - their hours are funny so I've cut and pasted from their website: Monday - Friday: 12:00pm - 3:15pm, 4:00pm - 6:45pm and 7:30pm - 10:45pm, Weekends: 12:00pm - 3:45pm and 7:30pm - 11:15pm, Public holidays: 12:00pm - 3:45pm and 7:30pm - 11:15pm. Free call 1800 700 102 or 0412 155 491 from a mobile.

    Melbourne also has a number of car based outreach NSPs that operate from roughly 7pm-11pm. Best bet is to call Direct Line, state your location and they will tell you the appropriate one.

    Hobart - Anglicare in Watchorn Street has a 24 hour vending machine off the street. Equipment isn't free but is pretty cheap.

    Dunno if this is helpful to anyone but ill post it anyway.

    Liverpool hospital in sydney at the emergency entrance. Theres a 24 hour needle vending machine (dispenses fitpacks) completely free, as many as you want. Usually stocked but ln the rare occasions it's not you can go in and ask for a fitpack and they'll give you at least one, maybe a couple depending on supply. Again, all free, also very easy parking right in front of where the machine is. Very easy to get too, on Elizabeth St just off the Hume Highway.

    MELB:

    I'm in the western suburbs of Melbourne and am having a lot of trouble finding where I can get the needles I use in my size.
    I have at the last few years bought all my own equipment through a medical supply shop, but as I ran out on Thursday, I wouldn't get delivery until Tuesday.
    Their needles I'm looking for our nothing special, just plain old insulin syringes, but with a much shorter needle, being a girl with thin veins, thats all my body can handle.

    I accessed all their needle exchange programs on Friday, in several suburbs but their needles only come into sizes and they are both too long for me.

    I've had to use them anyway because I've had nothing else and my arms look as if I've been run over by the wheel of a truck, I've wasted hundreds of dollars in unusable gear and am now getting quite sick so have changed ROA.

    Many pharmacies in the western suburbs I'm not so insulin syringes to the general public, I've tried calling several to see.

    If anyone could please help me out with info or needles, Id be very grateful, although it doesn't seem like many people would use the ones I do, seeing as though the free exchange program don't supply them.

    Im just hoping one of you may have legal access to them or know where i could get some, and of course Im happy to pay for them np, and if your recommending an area I can only drive about as far as the west edge of Melbourne. Thanks heaps.

    BDM00187 BD Ultra-Fine Insulin Syringe 1ml 31G x 8mm Thin. [/B]If you could help thx a bunch

    This is the most helpful site I've ever come across in regards to locations, and everyone I've been to so far hasn't failed, so all information must be correct and up to date.
