A “clinic” describes a group of doctors and healthcare practitioners with a variety of expertise and specialities. Clinics taking part in Project Twenty21 do not need to specialise in medical cannabis, rather they might have a particular specialism (eg. pain). Clinicians can also choose to prescribe independently of a clinic.

The clinics set their own pricing for the initial and follow-up consultations, and these costs must be covered by the patient.

When choosing a clinic to contact, patients are advised to check that their condition can be addressed by that specific clinic. When contacting the clinic, patients should inform their clinic that they wish to participate in Project Twenty21 before their consultation – this way the clinic can ensure that the patient has access to our subsidised products.
