VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Premier Health Group (CSE: PHGI, OTCQB: PHGRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “Premier Health”), a Company focused on developing innovative approaches that combine human skill based expertise with emerging technologies for the healthcare industry, is pleased to announce an update on its plan to expand the scope of practice within its primary care clinics to include cannabis.
The Company has engaged discussions with Licensed Producers under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation (ACMPR), other licensed medical cannabis companies and government officials in order to establish a framework for both patient and physician education.
“With over 110,000 active patients in our clinic ecosystem it is important that we provide them with the best possible information that allows them to make informed decisions about their personal and family’s health. Providing our family physicians with the appropriate tools and knowledge to prescribe cannabis or with the ability to refer patients to a specialist within our clinics is a key outcome of this initiative,” said Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier.
Furthermore, the Company is actively recruiting additional physicians for its existing clinics and a cannabis focussed physician that is licensed in Canada.
