An independent research group called ‘LymeResearchUK and Ireland‘ has launched a survey to find out about the experiences of people with tick-borne diseases in the UK and Ireland, in particular about the health services they have received. The research group is headed by Kate Bloor, a member of the Social Research Association, and the charity Tick Talk Ireland.

The survey is open to people infected by tick-borne disease in the UK or Ireland and can be completed here where there are also some explanatory notes.

If anyone has any queries, or problems accessing the survey, they should contact the survey team at

The survey is open from the 8th October 2011 and will run for eight weeks.
There are several OTHER ways of getting access to the survey.
  •  You can be sent a direct link to the on-line survey, by email contact
  • and/or a copy of the paper version  (either email or sent to you in the post).
The organisation needs to recruit a lot of people to the study so please pass this information on.
