BBC Health highlights Lyme disease

The BBC ran a well researched article following the UK demonstration in London for the Worldwide Lyme Disease Protest.

This was picked up very quickly across the country and resulted in a surge of enquiries to LDA’s patient help email service. These included emails from patients who had seen the EM rash on themselves some years ago and suddenly realised that Lyme disease might be the cause of their¬†manifold symptoms. This highlights the importance of public awareness, and we have to hope that GPs also saw the article.
