Raising awareness of Lyme Disease in Parliament

Many constituents have raised with me the awareness and treatment of Lyme disease, with which I was recently diagnosed after a constituent came to my surgery and raised my own awareness of the symptoms. There is a stark issue here concerning both awareness and clarity about the treatment that is available and should be used. Last month I asked the Leader of the House of Commons to consider debate time being granted to discuss this important issue.
