Dear Public Health England, In light of the confirmation of at least 60 deaths attributed to Fentanyl being ingested by people who use drugs. Can you please give me links to the advice/information that has been made available via twitter,PHE website, advertising, leaflet/downloads for the public to inform what Fentanyl is and guidance on any harm reduction measures regarding this.

Also can you let me know of advice give to call handlers on drug helplines at first contact from people concerned about substance use and if Fentanyl is mentioned specifically as a possible adulterant and any harm reduction information, not limited to service referral but less risky substance use practice such as smoking before/in place of injecting

From 2015-1/08/17 Would be great, thank-you.

Yours faithfully,
