Lyme Disease

Please review need for testing with the Raigmore Lyme Disease and Tick-Borne Infections algorithm  


Serology requests must include appropriate clinical information including symptoms and time between tick bite/possible exposure and onset of illness. 

Requests with inadequate clinical details e.g. "?Lyme" or "tick bite" will not be referred for testing. 

Refer to NICE Lyme disease for further management guidance including antibiotic treatment options and duration
