Patient Guide

Who we are and what we do

Lemonaid Health Limited runs the Boots Online Doctor Service. We’re an online healthcare provider. In that sense we don’t meet our patients in person. We’re a private service and not part of the NHS.

We’re registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent healthcare regulator in England, with provider ID 1-10153778719. Our address as a registered provider with the CQC is 7 Bardwell Road, Oxford, OX2 6SU. We have a satellite office in London at Tetbury Place, Business Design Center, London N1 0QH.

Our Registered Manager is Ian Van Every. Our Chief Medical Officer Dr Christina Hennessey runs our clinical team. Our clinical team is made up of doctors, pharmacist independent prescribers and nurse prescribers. Our clinical team are all based in the UK.

Our mission is to improve access to great care by providing a convenient private alternative to the NHS for specific areas of primary care that we can manage safely online. We also want to help you make informed decisions about which treatments are right for you.

Our services include treatment services and home test kits where you send a physical sample off to our partner laboratory in the packaging we provide. The Doctors Laboratory in London is our partner laboratory.

Most of our services are available to patients aged 18 and up. Patients aged 16 and up can use some of our services, such as acne treatment. Different services have different upper age limits based on our evidence-based clinical protocols.

When we prescribe a medicine you have the choice to pick up your medicine at your local Boots store or to have Boots deliver the medicine in the post using Royal Mail. We can also send a hard copy paper prescription to any pharmacy other than Boots, but you’d need to pay the pharmacy for the medicine directly.
