Wales to offer monthly buprenorphine injections during COVID-19 restrictions

In response to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, Wales has offered addiction treatment service users an injectable form of buprenorphine that will last 1 month. The medication will routinely be offered to service users to help minimise the number of times they need to attend a pharmacy to collect opioid substitution therapy medications.
