At Sapphire Clinics, we see patients with a range of conditions – such as chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety. We also have a growing number of patients suffering from these conditions who are military veterans. With a special nod to those who have served, we are proud to announce our new access scheme for UK veterans.
Veterans Access Scheme
In recognition of their service, UK veterans are now entitled to up to four free appointments per year at Sapphire Clinics. We hope that this new access scheme can reduce the burden of cost to allow veterans to access the support and medical care they seek. To access this benefit, veterans need only to provide proof of service, which can include a veteran ID card or a discharge letter.
To complete our free eligibility form, click here.
Please select ‘UK HM Veteran’ when completing the eligibility form. When your application is complete and you have submitted your medical records, email a copy of your proof of service to [email protected]. If eligible for treatment, you will receive a code by email which you can use to book your free appointments.
At Sapphire we are dedicated to expanding the available evidence on medical cannabis when used in conditions which commonly affect military veterans. A selection of these can be found here:
