A suspected heroin overdose has taken place just metres from a press conference in Melbourne where the state premier was announcing a safe injecting room trial.

Ambulance Victoria confirmed it was called to a suspected overdose in heroin hotspot North Richmond, where Premier Daniel Andrews was in the middle of a press conference announcing the trial.

Legislation to open the room at the North Richmond Community Health Service will be introduced into parliament on Tuesday.

There were 34 heroin-related deaths in North Richmond last year and 34 already this year.
