We are delighted to announce we have expanded our existing relationship with Phlo Connect partner, Leva Clinic, making us the first UK digital pharmacy to offer secure dispensary and direct-to-door delivery of medical cannabis.

This partnership expansion means we are Leva Clinic’s digital pharmacy partner of choice; enabling them to enhance their patient experience through connected prescribing, dispensing and delivery. This is powered by our innovative digital pharmacy services, including dispensary through Phlo Digital Pharmacy and delivery via our industry regulated delivery partners.

Delivering with success

The medicinal cannabis is cultivated and manufactured by Akanda Corp, and imported into the UK through a trusted supply chain partnership between Leva Clinic and Akanda Corp. This ensures there is a rigorous quality control process around the medical cannabis we dispense to Leva Clinic patients.  

Therefore, ensuring safe delivery of the end-patient medication is a vital aspect of our Phlo Connect clinician-patient experience. Working with our selected delivery partners, and the relevant regulatory bodies, we have developed and approved a robust set of process and procedures, building upon our already stringent delivery services.  

Transforming chronic pain management together

Leva Clinic are the UK's top online clinic for people living with chronic pain, employing a team of world-renowned pain specialists. They specialise in a holistic approach to chronic pain treatment and offer novel treatments, including personalised medical cannabis care plans. Leva Clinic are part of Project Twenty21 - the largest observational medical cannabis research project in Europe which aims to gather clinical and real-world data to assess the effectiveness and efficacy of medical cannabis. 

“We are thrilled to partner with the team at Phlo Connect to ensure our patients can safely and speedily receive their personalised medical cannabis treatments. Our philosophy at Leva Clinic is centred around easy access to novel chronic pain management that works – especially where traditional approaches are ineffective. We’ve found a likeminded partner in Phlo Connect, who have a patient-first approach to pharmacy and work hard to create a smooth and positive patient experience. Working together means we can ensure rapid delivery of pain management medications for Leva Clinic patient."

Eric Bystrom, CEO and Founder of Leva Clinic

Why Phlo Connect works

At Phlo Connect, part of our mission is to partner with likeminded healthcare providers, and through our API driven pharmacy services platform, set them up for success to deliver seamless consultation-to-treatment experiences for their patients. Working with Leva Clinic, their patients - who are managing debilitating chronic pain - can now access medical cannabis without leaving their home.  

From our work with patients managing chronic pain and conditions, we know an anxiety challenge is running out of pain medication and easily accessing more. This partnership gives Leva Clinic patients reassurance and control; knowing exactly when their medication will arrive, thanks to our carefully considered real time dispensing and delivery updates. They can focus their energies on managing their pain and working with Leva Clinic’s experts to achieve real results.  

“At Phlo Connect we are humbled that our ground-breaking partnership with Leva Clinic is helping patients effectively manage their chronic pain symptoms. Through the partnership we are the first UK digital pharmacy to deliver medical cannabis direct to patients’ homes across the UK. The novel approach to pain management at Leva Clinic is revolutionary and their commitment to legitimising the role of medical cannabis, through the T21 project, is testament to that. We’re thrilled to play a significant role in connecting them to their patients.”

Nadeem Sarwar, CEO and Founder of Phlo
