FOI 2023 104 - Lyme Disease


Information Requested:

I would like to be able  to produce spatial models of Lyme disease incidence in mainland UK
To do this I need lab confined case numbers (perhaps incidence per 100,000  - by some administrative unit such as electoral ward or unitary authority
I already  have such data for Scotland and for England from their Fingertips website
Is such data available for Wales


Information provided for the answer:

Thank you for your recent request dated 19th July 2023.
Unfortunately, Public Health Wales does not hold the specific information requested. As an organisation we do not have access to the data produced by other organisations. 
I have provided contact details for the Lyme disease diagnostic service below; you would need to contact them as they may hold this information.
