A journey into medical cannabis
Hannah's journey into this began with her son Alfie's story. Alfie Dingley was the first patient in the UK to receive a permanent cannabis licence which meant his doctors could prescribe what was then a schedule one drug on the NHS.

"I want to use my voice to ensure patients & their loved ones are at the centre of developing the medical cannabis sector" - Hannah Deacon
“Hannah Deacon is an inspiring advocate for, an expert in, the rapidly developing field of medical cannabis. Her enthusiasm and knowledge were forged in the adversity and struggle of her successful fight to secure the first-ever long-term license for her son, Alfie Dingley, to use medical cannabis to help control his intractable epilepsy. Her success in this endeavour is widely acknowledged to have played a critical role in securing the landmark law change of November 2018.
Hannah is a nationally recognised expert in medical cannabis with an impressive network of contacts across the industry and Government. She has an in-depth understanding of the medical science involved, as well as being an expert in the legislative, regulatory and compliance aspects of the sector.”
