Be Tick Aware

Enjoy the Outdoors but be tick aware

Ticks are tiny spider-like creatures that live in woods and areas with long grass. They are found all over the UK.
Ticks don't jump or fly – they attach to the skin of animals or humans that brush past them.

Some Tick bites can result in infection, so it is important to remove ticks safety and as quick as possible.

If you or someone you know does get a tick and not sure what to do, If you can't speak to your GP, don't forget you can always ring 111 or you can visit the NHS 111 website
