Speaking about Lyme disease on BBC Radio 5

I recently did an interview with BBC 5 Live regarding Lyme Disease and the need for better awareness and a speed up on the reviews into treatment. I was incredibly fortunate to get diagnosed very quick thanks to a constituent raising my awareness to the symptoms and I am on the antibiotics. I’m still very tired with the high dose but getting there – the important thing now is that I alert people to the dangers. Wiltshire is one of the highest risk places in the UK and you can get bitten even in your garden. Be tick aware – spray yourself and check yourself.
