Intractable is a charity set up by families who have loved ones with intractable epilepsy. Our loved ones had exhausted all NHS treatments and we all ended up being thrown together after finding cannabinoid treatment. It helped our loved ones so much that we wanted to be able to provide some financial help to other families who are in the same position.
The only current route is private prescriptions and after funding the medication ourselves for the past 2 years we know the financial burden this can put on families. We want to help as many families as possible who want to try cannabinoid treatments. Lots of children/adults who suffer greatly from intractable epilepsy often don’t get the chance to try treatments outside of the NHS and they have to continue to suffer daily seizures.
