Venue location

Liverpool Medical Institution

114 Mount Pleasant Liverpool L3 5SR

The conference venue is the Liverpool Medical Institution, established in the mid 19th century – a period of rapid change and innovation – and located only 100 metres from an example of a partnership between civic organisations, NGOs and key individuals, the site of the first UK needle and syringe programme, the Maryland Centre, which was opened in the mid 1980s. An example of an important development to avert a public health crisis.
