The Integrated Monitoring System (IMS) data tables. include activity delivered during the 2018-19 financial year by 38 drug and alcohol services and 93 pharmacies across Merseyside and Cheshire. This data covers presentations to needle and syringe programmes (NSPs) and other low threshold interventions delivered to individuals using drugs and/or alcohol, focussing on areas such as wellbeing, demographics and substances used. The data is presented in three distinct cohort groups.
The data tables precede a full report which will include cross-matched data from Public Health England (PHE) for individuals reporting to the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS). This will be published early in 2020.
