In 2015, the Government began legislating to allow for the creation of MSIFs and, as part of that, for a pilot MSIF to be established. In May 2017, the Misuse of Drugs (Medically Supervised Injecting Facility) Act 2017 was signed into law by the President.
MQI plan to locate the MSIF in our Riverbank Centre on Merchant’s Quay, where we currently provide other healthcare and harm reduction services. Having these services in a single location is key to the success of a MSIF. It is proposed that the MSIF will be located in the basement of the existing building and renovation of the basement will be accompanied by a refresh of the exterior of the building. Our MSIF booklet details our proposal for the MSIF, as well as addressing frequently asked questions on the MSIF.
If you have any questions on the MSIF, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and staff will assist you as best they can.
