Free Disposal of Sharps 

Some practices have recently reported that patients with diabetes have been directed to the council for sharps bin collection. The council charges £35 per collection but there is an existing process for sharps disposals that is free for all Islington patients. All pharmacies commissioned to provide needle exchanges will accept sharps for any condition, including diabetes. Please make sure you inform your diabetes patients of this service.
