PIED Information Request
We have received an information request from the BBC asking about the current levels of Performance and Image Enhancing Drug (PIEDs) users attending UK Needle and Syringe Programmes (NSPs). The current information from members has been anecdotal accounts of increases in use, with some locations saying that the bulk of NSP attendees are using PIEDs. However, as far as we know, there is very little actual recent data on this that has been collated. As a topic we at the NNEF are also interested in, we have agreed to collaborate with the BBC in undertaking some further research. We have put together a short form for our members to complete asking about PIED use in their area.
