Australia’s Medicinal Cannabis Network CA Clinics Expands Specialist Offering to DVA Services
In a positive development for supporting the health of veterans, CA Clinics, Australia’s first medicinal cannabis clinic network, is excited to announce that its lineup of specialist offerings has been expanded to include dedicated Department of Veterans’ Affairs clinics.
CA Clinics recognises the unique needs of Australia’s veteran community and the desire for effective treatment options, which may include medicinal cannabis. The addition of a highly qualified DVA rehabilitation specialist to CA Clinics’ expert team will increase access and comprehensive care for Australian DVA patients seeking these alternative treatment options.
We expect that the addition of a doctor who specialises in supporting the DVA patient group will make it easier for veterans to get DVA approvals and enable suitable patients to obtain approval in 4-6 weeks. All doctor and product costs are expected to be covered by the DVA.
CA Clinics is committed to better serving the needs of our returned servicemen and women with a faster, more streamlined and focused port of specialised care, backed by an Allied Health Team and full liaison with the patient’s personal doctors.
