Breaking News – New Survey Released for UK & Ireland
This is a survey by an independent group of researchers, led by Kate Bloor. She is fully registered with the Social Research Association, and this project adheres to their ethical guidelines.
Information about the full purpose of the research and a paper copy can be made available on request.
To sign up to join the on-line survey, please use the link below. I can also send you a copy of the paper version in the post, if you provide an address.If you were part of the ‘pilot’ study please fill in the form again, as it has changed slightly.
If there are several people at the same IP address who wish to fill in the form, let me know and I can arrange that. Once the link is used once it becomes inactive so you need to ask for a new link.
You can opt for continued contact about the research on the form. Any personal details sent directly to me, by email will be deleted after the survey is finished (as per ethical guidelines).
We need to recruit people far and wide, including those who might not be on websites, have been treated and are better, those who were treated quickly etc. However, its important to approach other people in the right way for ethical reasons.
Ask their permission, and then either I can send you a link to pass onto them, or with their permission I can send it directly to them by email.
If you want an example of the kind of research that has been done, please find the link below.
Many thanks for your help and interest.

We are planning more tick sweeps plus our very first Lyme conference for the new year, more details to follow..
The image above (click to enlarge) shows the results of our very 1st tick sweep in Ireland. More than 15 ticks were readily found in the picnic area of Portumna Forest, County Galway. More sweeps will take place in the following year, we will be looking for infections that the ticks may carry. If you have spotted ticks in Ireland please complete our survey (Tick Talking while You’re Walking) at http://www.ticktalkireland.org/surveys.html
Thank you so much for your support.
