Media Contact

Press Information

We work closely with all media. If you are working on a story on Lyme disease, we’re here to help.

Our Chief Executive Veronica Hughes can offer expert comment as a member of the NICE Guideline committee for Lyme disease (NG95) and the Quality Standards Advisory Committee. We can put you in touch with people suffering from Lyme disease who would be happy to share their story, as well as other experts for comment. We also provide statistics, facts and other resources to help inform your stories.

The charity works hard to educate the public with evidence-based information on Lyme disease and to collaborate with the NHS constructively to achieve progress. We do not support media activity that seeks to stir up controversy, promote unfounded theories or make allegations against people of organisations.
