How we began our eczema treatment service

A few years ago, our founder Dr. Thomas Anderson began investigating the lived experience of patients with eczema.

Through extensive research, including interviews with hundreds of individuals, he identified the majority were tolerating their condition, having given up on a system that was not addressing their needs.

Patients reported:

  • An inability to access specialists
  • Generic advice from GPs
  • Little contiunity of care
  • And a failure to recognise the impacts of the condition

Tend is taking a
different approach.

We understand that by providing easier access to specialist knowledge and care, we can enable people with eczema to take control of their skin.

Tend is our solution. A streamlined service offering members anytime consultations, personalised care plans, and treatments delivered to the door.
