Local Lyme Disease Support

Local support groups have been set up by Lyme disease patients across the UK. We welcome new groups and are happy to list any details you think would be useful. Whilst the majority of the Lyme community find support online, it’s great to meet people in person and have a face to face chat. Many people have built rewarding friendships this way. The below groups have a mixture of regular and occasional meets and give people the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation nearby. You may also find the local Facebook groups handy for discussing health resources and medical experiences in your area.
