Abstract

This paper reports the results of an evaluation of two community based 'walk-in' health clinics for drug misusers, primarily for those injecting drugs. In 1989, these clinics were established as a means of improving the availability of health care facilities to a group of individuals known to have high morbidity. The factors leading to the establishment of this service are identified, and the first year of the service is described together with suggestions for further expansion of this service.
