  • T cell tests – Tamara van Gorkom, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, The Netherlands. How useful is this technique?
  • Primary Care records – John Tulloch will explain the difficulties of using GP records to get a better estimate of the incidence of Lyme disease

The conference fee covers coffee, lunch and tea breaks and a literature pack as well as conference sessions. There will be ample opportunity for discussions with both speakers and fellow delegates.

Accommodation for Friday and Saturday nights is direct through Exeter University – we shall issue you with a discount code when you book your delegate place.

We shall meet for an evening meal on the Friday night before the conference and many stay on for a convivial dinner in the city on the Saturday night after the conference, so there is plenty of time for networking.
