The Royal College of GPs has prepared a Lyme Disease Toolkit for use by GPs.
"Fiona Stalker travels around Scotland to investigate the spread of Lyme disease. One tiny tick under the skin can cause chronic illness but GPs are often slow to diagnose and to give treatment. Fiona hears from sufferers who feel let down by the health service and asks what more can be done to combat this debilitating disease."
Tick-bites can lead to long term illnesses.
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and as ticks are most active from spring to autumn, it pays to know how to tackle them.
