In this episode we discuss the Scottish Government's 'Drug Deaths Taskforce' that has been convened in response to the worsening drug overdose crisis that is currently enveloping Scotland.
We hear from Professor Catriona Matheson, Chair of the Taskforce, about how the first two meetings have gone and what the group hopes to achieve.
Also, Kirsten Horsburgh, lead of the Scottish National Naloxone Programme and SDF podcast host, takes us through some of the recommendations she has made to the group in regards to Scotland's naloxone provision.
