About Neptune

NEPTUNE has been developed to improve clinical practice in the management of harms resulting from the use of club drugs and novel psychoactive substances. It is aimed at clinicians working in a range of frontline settings, including drug treatment and recovery services, emergency departments, sexual health services, primary care and mental health services.


NEPTUNE is funded by the Health Foundation, an independent charity working to improve the quality of health care in the UK. Guidance development has been hosted by Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.

New eLearning Hub

The Neptune e-learning modules have been updated and you will find the 2022 modules live and freely accessible on RCPsych’s eLearning Hub. These modules aim to better support training for front-line clinicians and other practitioners.
