No formal assessment has been made of the National AIDS Trust report however officials will consider its findings in the development of future drugs policy. The Government is concerned by the number of drug-related deaths and is supporting local areas to develop a more joined up approach to commissioning and delivering the range of services that are essential to supporting recovery and preventing drug-related deaths.
