Breaking Down Barriers

Why we need your help

Medical cannabis can have life-transforming effects for vulnerable patients in the UK whose lives are blighted by chronic conditions. NHS access is still virtually non-existent. In the recent grant application round, we have received a huge increase in applications.

How you can help

We are seeking to secure monthly contributions from a number of organisations with 100% of your monthly donation going directly to fund the prescription cost. Sapphire Medical Clinics contribute the grant recipient appointment costs.

The typical cost of a prescription for medical cannabis treating chronic pain is £114 a month. However, Sapphire Medical Foundation supports patients with the greatest need, facing the largest financial barriers. For example prescription costs for a child with treatment resistant epilepsy can be in excess of £1,000 a month.
