Good practice case study: The Cocoon project


31 May 2022 by HCV Action
The Cocoon project, set up in Tayside, Scotland seeks to address the high rate of drug-related deaths in the area.  The project delivers point-of-care diagnosis of HCV in needle exchange sites, while also integrating services which typically require travel to alternate NHS sites to reduce the burden of multiple visits and different providers. The result is a ‘one-stop’ holistic care bundle which seeks to address the inequity of access experienced by PWUD by increasing their engagement through services tailored to their specific needs.
