The aim of this evaluation was to establish whether the current model of naloxone provision and training across all Health and Social Care (HSC) Trusts in Northern Ireland is sufficient and to identify areas for development.

All individuals interviewed regarded the naloxone programme positively. The programme is and should be viewed as a community asset, developing skills and providing equipment to save lives. The issues identified in the above list should help to increase the impact of this programme in reducing opioid deaths in Northern Ireland.
