Treatment Funding Options

Because the NHS does not have currently provide a sufficient treatment for those suffering from chronic Lyme and co-infections, most people in the UK have to pay out of pocket to see a functional medical practitioner in the UK or to go overseas to see a Lyme literate doctor (LLMD).  Over years of being ill, this can add up to the thousands (or more), so I have compiled a list of funding charities which can help fund treatment:
