Welcome

Lyme Resource Centre is a charity with a mission to educate the public and medical profession about Lyme disease and related tick-borne co-infections and work with others to research ways to combat all tick-borne illnesses.

We Are A Charity

We are celebrating the launch of our charity. Lyme Resource Centre was registered as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) with OSCR, the Scottish Charity Regulator, on 21st March 2019. Irish registration is also intended.

Our first steps will be to provide an information section on this website and develop public information leaflets for distribution. We then intend to run training sessions for GPs and other healthcare staff.

Response to Science Media Centre briefing on Lyme Disease

The views represented at the Science Media Centre briefing on 9th October and reported on in an article in the BMJ are one extreme of a diverse range of views on Lyme disease. However, there is an ever-increasing body of science showing that Lyme disease is not rare, that the tests are unreliable, that chronic illness is common, and that it involves more than 'residual symptoms' and can be life-threatening.
