Access4Patients, an online patient support system, operated by NuMeds Services Ltd, has announced today that it has successfully been able to support the UK’s first adult patient with their private medical cannabis prescription supply.
The medication was dispensed from White Pharmacy, a registered pharmacy, and delivered direct to the patient by secure courier. The delivery was made on the 08/02/2019 setting a new legal pathway for patient access to medical cannabis.
Under the new legal framework for medical cannabis in the UK, specialist doctors can now prescribe cannabis-based medicines for patients, obtaining a legal supply that has been dispensed directly for them.
Marios Panteli the Managing Director of NuMeds said, “Being the first company to successfully support a patient’s needs for cannabis-based medicines in the UK, demonstrates the ability of our company to navigate complex and evolving legal regulatory systems. This has been made possible by a series of linked contracts, that cover all aspects of the importation and distribution of the medicine”
NuMeds is currently expanding its network in the UK to ensure their patients get all the support they require, whilst having legal access to medical cannabis when needed.
The company has also issued the first medical cannabis patient ID card, which can be used alongside an in-app copy of the prescription, to establish the patient’s status to the authorities. It is also really great to see their collaboration with the United Patients Alliance Ltd , who are in full support of the Access4Patients service.
“United Patients Alliance are delighted to have been working closely with NuMeds Services Ltd. in the creation of Access4Patients and fully endorse the service from which a few of our patients have already benefited and we expect that many more will in due course. ” Jonathan Liebling – Political Director – United Patients Alliance
