Currently our sharps bins are not being collected by SRCL the plant that disposes of them has been closed as they do not meet new safety standards.
As our bins are almost full, please keep your sharps until this situation has been resolved.
We will notify all patients once this has changed.
When you are young, your parents are usually
involved in your health care. They may make
decisions for you, and speak to health workers on your
behalf. But as you get older you have more rights. You
can decide if you want your parents to be involved
or not. This leaflet explains your rights once you are
thought to be old enough to make your own decisions
about your health care information.
