The Placebo Clinic is a new kind of healthcare provider and is the first of it’s kind in the UK. 

We are a small group of GPs based in Manchester who have a passion for providing high-quality, safe and effective care to our patients. 

However, in recent years we have been increasingly frustrated by the limitations of many of the standard treatments available to us; whether because of addiction, withdrawal, side-effects – or just the fact that they often don’t seem to work that well.

We knew that there must be a better way and so we decided to try and figure out how we could make meaningful improvements to our patients’ symptoms whilst reducing the overall risk to their health.

The result is The Placebo Clinic, a service a lot like your own GP – except that we consult via WhatsApp and the medication you receive may or may not be a placebo.
