We would like to take this opportunity to inform the Lethbridge community about the status of our medical cannabis prescription program.
At this time, we cannot book any assessments or doctor’s appointments, as we have had a lot of difficulty finding physicians who are willing to prescribe medical cannabis in the Lethbridge area. In the spirit of full transparency to our patients, we want to convey that we have been working diligently on this issue behind the scenes for 12 months. As part of our commitment to the Lethbridge community, we have gone as far as bringing down doctors from Calgary to work with our patients in Lethbridge, but we no longer have this option for the time being.
We are still able to fulfill medical cannabis prescription renewals under ACMPR, but are doing so in a limited capacity for now. While we have had difficulty finding doctors to write new prescriptions, but we are still operating our resource centre in Lethbridge and are happy to answer any questions surrounding medical cannabis.
We want to sincerely apologize to our current patients in Lethbridge and the community as a whole for what we understand must be a frustrating experience. Please know that we are continuing to seek physicians to prescribe at our Lethbridge clinic, but we unfortunately have no timeline for a resolution on this.
We will keep the community apprised of the situation as updates become available. Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Our clinic is operating under regular business hours, so please feel free to call us if you have any questions: 403-327-4687.
