frequently asked questions
  1. You can request to book an appointment directly or request a referral from your GP or Consultant. To contact us directly, please complete the short assisted referral form to arrange an eligibility consultation. You can download this pack if you would like to further discuss Sapphire with your doctor.
  2. We check through the information provided and at times may request more information from your doctor. Once accepted, our support team will contact you to arrange an initial appointment via Zoom or face to face in one of our clinics (where available).
  3. At your initial appointment, the specialist will review your medical history and care plans to understand the next stage in treatment and whether medicinal cannabis would benefit you. We collect a range of information from you, some come in the form of questionnaires to help us monitor your treatment and advance knowledge about medical cannabis using the National Cannabis Registry (hosted via Dendrite)
  4. After your initial assessment, if you and your specialist decide medical cannabis could be an option to consider your specialist will present your case to our multidisciplinary team for authorisation at our weekly multidisciplinary team meeting. This process ensures there is oversight of all of the treatments our patients have to provide them with the best possible care plan.
  5. Once authorised, we post the prescription to the nominated pharmacy to have the medicines dispensed for you. After initiating treatment your specialist will review your treatment and support you through any changes to the plan that may be required to fit your needs. You will need continued follow up with your specialist to allow us to continue to prescribe your medicines.
