Australia’s Leading Clinic Network
Support For Healthcare Providers
Did You Know?
In 2016, the Australian federal government passed legislation authorising a range of cannabis-based medicines to be prescribed to patients by registered healthcare professionals.
Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) enables doctors to access medicinal cannabis products for their patients where clinically appropriate. The current system allows any registered health professional to prescribe medicinal cannabis either through the Special Access Scheme (SAS) or the Authorised Prescriber Scheme (APS). Up until February 2021, 99,000 Special Access Scheme Category B (SAS-B) applications had been approved.

Tetra Health is a trusted Australian based clinic network led by a collaborative team of medical professionals. Tetra has a team of specialist Authorised Prescribers that will assess a patient’s medical condition to determine if medicinal cannabis might be an appropriate treatment, and support that patient’s treatment via Tetra’s team of specialist nurses.
Medical practitioners who may not wish to prescribe medicinal cannabis can easily refer their patients to Tetra Health for assessment.
