Review of the Medically Supervised Injecting Room 2023

On 21 February 2023 an independent panel, chaired by Mr John Ryan delivered the second independent review of the Medically Supervised Injecting Room (MSIR). Mr Ryan, along with panel members Ms Chris Kotur and the Hon. Robert Knowles outlined 10 recommendations to the Minister for Mental Health.

The Ryan Review found that since its establishment in 2018, the MSIR trial in North Richmond has succeeded in achieving the trial’s central objective: saving lives. There have been almost 6,000 overdose events safely managed in the MSIR trial, and up to 63 lives have been saved.
