Hannah Deacon – Moderator

Executive Director, The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society

Hannah Deacon’s successful campaign with End Our Pain led to son Alfie’s doctors receiving the first schedule one license to prescribe whole plant cannabis on the NHS. Hannah then became the first person to legally enter the UK with medical cannabis containing THC. Alfie received the first NHS prescription for medical cannabis through a shared care agreement, agreed by the Home Office.

 

With an international reputation for achieving change in the sector, Hannah’s dedication to campaigning and advocating for the rights of patients succeeded when the law changed on 1 November 2018. A dedicated patient advocate, Hannah fights to overcome barriers to medical cannabis in the UK, supporting better education to ensure patients right across the country get the access they need and the help they deserve.
