The primary objective of LymeAid UK is to provide grants to people on low income who suspect they have Lyme Borreliosis for private overseas testing for the disease. A positive Lyme Disease test is the difference for most people between getting treatment on the NHS or not; or being able to successfully fundraise for and obtain private treatment or not. The charity is required as the NHS test is insufficient. No test exists to rule out Lyme Borreliosis but the majority of NHS doctors will not treat based on a clinical diagnosis alone.Grants for private tests will be given out by LymeAid UK twice a year to as many people as there are sufficient funds for, with priority being given to people with the highest likelihood of having Lyme disease, with the most severe symptoms, with low or no income and of course people who have already received a negative NHS test.
