Lyme Disease Action MP Briefing


Thank you to the charity Lyme Disease Action who held a briefing for MPs in Westminster on 16th November 2016. A request for feedback was put out and so LDUK gathered some comments from group members and sent in information which we felt should be included in the briefing. LDUK feedback can be read here. In a joint letter, a group of other Lyme disease organisations in the UK requested to attend the meeting as well. The letter can be read here. Unfortunately, we were told that it would not be possible to attend due to the small size of the room. LDUK also sent a statement to MPs to raise awareness and some key points. Lyme Disease Action’s briefing note can be found here. We hope that representatives from all organisations will have the opportunity to meet together with MPs in the near future to discuss key issues. The organisations included in the joint letter were:


Lyme Disease UK

About Time for Lyme

Caudwell LymeCo

LymeAid UK

Lyme Disease Northern Ireland

Lyme Research UK
