Functional Medicine & Nutrition

CBD & Medical Cannabis Clinic

Medically leading on CBD Cannabis advice. We are leading the way in Leicestershire, and in the UK, by now being able to advise and support on Cannabis prescriptions.

Why not discuss this when you are seeing Dr Piper for your usual health problems? She will be able to prioritise what is important with your health and direct you towards the correct dosing and the properly certificated and toxicology tested CBD – where this is appropriate for your health.

The higher dose CBD is beneficial for pain relief and can also help drug resistant epilepsy.

Understanding the complex homoestatic mechanisms of cannabis in our bodies, with CANNABIS RECEPTORS throughout our brain, spinal-cord, gut, skin and major organs – shows us that there is an innate intelligence of healing action.

There is emerging evidence outside the UK that supports success with CBD in treating many other conditions such as autoimmunity, anxiety and other symptoms which are difficult to treat in other ways.

Together with Dr Piper’s knowledge of medicine, functional medicine, acupuncture, we will be able to help and advise.

For Cannabis products containing THC, which have been used in situations of palliative care and chemotherapy induced vomiting we have a multidisciplinary Medical Cannabis Medical Team here at PGP, to whom we will refer you if we feel that you are a candidate who may benefit from the evidence based treatment that is available for these products.

What other points do I need to know?

  • Each appointment will have to be paid at the time of booking your appointment.
  • Due to heavy regulations and governance issues, please note that before you have had your appointment, no guarantees can be made that medical cannabis will actually be issued. In this eventuality, there will be no refund.
  • In general, the first two appointments, i.e. the initial, and the follow-up, will take place with a medical specialist. Thereafter, the following appointments will be made with a specialist GP trained in medical cannabis. All follow-up appointments are charged at the same rate whether it is the specialist or the GP. But once the specialist needs to refer you to the GP, this will be obligatory, in order to free up the specialists time for new patients. Once your condition is stable, it may be possible to apply for repeat prescriptions but this is down to the decision of the doctor.
  • Medical cannabis prescriptions can only be issued at monthly intervals. Sometimes it is difficult to get hold of prescriptions, although the situation is easing somewhat. You are alone are responsible for payment and purchase of the medical cannabis treatment. Patients with the Twenty21 research registry, are invoiced on a different basis but have only a limited number of cannabis medications available. Whilst this registry is ongoing, it is subsidised.
  • With respect to your GP appointment, private GP.com is a specialist in functional medicine and if necessary, if you need any further help with respect to your illness, we will be able to help and support you. Please ask if you would like a functional medical doctor ( link to functional medicine) to review your medical cannabis prescription, once you have referred to the GP by the medical specialist.
