Many patients and doctors are unaware that they can get access to elsewhere approved medicines. Understandably so, many doctors have important questions about our service and what we do. Here is a fact sheet that explains what to expect when working with us.

Regulations such as the Named Patient and personal import rule are used in exceptional cases. These laws are meant for those who have a serious or life-threatening condition without adequate treatment options in their home country.

Patients often have a difficult time finding alternative options to obtain these medicines. Furthermore, patients are not able to contact suppliers directly. Transporting these types of treatments require special shipping, handling and paperwork. It can be an extremely frustrating endeavour for those who are already strained by the impact of the disease.

For these reasons and more, we work on behalf of the patient (with a valid prescription from their treating doctor) to source and deliver these vital medicines from our certified supply network. TheSocialMedwork is very aware of the numerous charlatans that exist on the internet, furthermore we provide a groundbreaking service so new that most doctors are not yet aware of it. Therefore we aim to provide the greatest transparency in our operations. We've created a useful fact sheet for you to pass along to your doctor. It addresses some questions and concerns commonly expressed by healthcare professionals when they first hear of us. You can download it by clicking here.
