In 2006 DrThom became the first ever online organisation to register with the government regulator of healthcare - the Care Quality Commission. Registration added an additional aspect to our already high standards:

DrThom was founded in 2002 by Dr Thom Van Every, a UK trained doctor specialising in sexual health.

While working at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital in London Dr Van Every observed that patients seeking help for sexual health problems found the process embarrassing and inconvenient. He suspected many patients were so put off going to the doctor that they weren't seeking any help at all.

As a result Dr Van Every set about replacing traditional face-to-face care with remote and online medical services to make it easier for patients to receive the care they needed whatever their problem.

DrThom now provides a whole range of remote medical services to patients all over the country in partnership with NHS and private organisations.

With a growing body of research evidence showing that patient-led, remotely overseen medical care is safe and leads to better health for patients DrThom continues to lead the way in making it as easy as possible for patients to look after themselves.
