United Patients Alliance Ltd - announces collaboration and support for the Access4Patients service

Access4Patients has announced today that its online system/app has successfully been able to support the first adult patient with their private medical cannabis prescription. The medication has been successfully dispensed from an approved pharmacy and delivered direct to the patient. 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 to patients who can obtain the legal supply  dispensed directly to them.

Being one of the first companies to successfully support a patient’s needs in relation to 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 contracts that cover all aspects of the importation and distribution of the medicines

NuMeds is currently expanding its network in the UK to ensure our patients get all the support they require, whilst having legal access to medical cannabis when needed. The company has 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. In addition they also make public, their collaboration with the United Patients Alliance Ltd , who are in 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.
