Lyme Disease UK

Patient Leader

Lyme Disease UK is the largest patient support network for Lyme disease sufferers and their loved ones in the UK. We run an informative website, a public Facebook page, an email newsletter, a Facebook support group with well over 4500 people and a Twitter account. Our team of volunteers attends public events, protests, meetings and conferences and liaises with other international Lyme disease organisations in order to campaign for an increase in knowledge and advancements in patient care. We are also stakeholders in a national Lyme disease guideline writing process. Our community inspires us daily and helps us to foster hope in the face of so much suffering and adversity.

Patient Leader Hero

This life-saving, soul-saving, warm, informative, ground-breaking group is determinedly trailblazing its way through the thorniest of territories to raise awareness of Lyme Disease in the UK but more than that through creative activism it pushes for better testing and treatment of Lyme Disease. It gives an otherwise abandoned patient group hope.  — Kathryn
