Mark is a UK GP who moved to Western Australia in 2015 to practice and will be returning to the UK in 2022. Within that time, medicinal cannabis prescription had been legalised for GPs in Western Australia, not just specialists.
Once experienced, Mark was accepted to become an Authorised Prescriber which gave him the ability to initiate any form of cannabis solo. Mark has treated over 250 different patients aged from 7 to 92, for many conditions from dermatitis to migraine and much in between.
Mark is particularly impressed with the use of CBD for anxiety and sleep disorders and is keen to translate his unique opportunity to the UK and help improve the understanding of this safe and effective treatment in primary care.
