After years of self prescribing and seeking pain relief for her chronic condition on the black market Francesca James has warmly welcomed WA’s first medicinal cannabis-centric doctors clinic, which opened Wednesday. Ms James, 27, used to work full time, ride horses and go to university, but in 2013 that all came crashing down.
What first started as a dull pain in her shoulders eventually spread throughout her body until it got so bad she was sometimes forced to sit in a wheelchair.
She was diagnosed with chronic pain from psoriatic arthritis and was on a cocktail of pain-relieving drugs.
Using a Telehealth model, our 15 minute screening appointments provide a quick and convenient way to assess the suitability of a patient’s condition for treatment prior to discussing options with their own doctor.
