    Hello, needing to set up a notice board for the above information- I already have the Do's and Don'ts of Sharps, where is best to find such comprehensive information for staff- to actually detail all of the above. Would there be an information pack or perhaps a poster to display?

    Hi Marie-Louise, I assume you have seen the resources available from HSE and RCN?
