TypeAdult Services - TB Nursing Service
Our team works with people who may have tuberculosis (TB) or who need screening. Our TB specialist nurses visit people receiving TB treatment in their homes, and we give support them and their families.
We offer advice and information to doctors, other health care professionals and the public.
We can arrange the screening of people who have had contact with TB. Contact our team if you are worried about TB exposure or if you would like more information.
The vaccination for TB, known as the BCG vaccination, is given to children by their health visitor. There are criteria that must be met before this can be given. Please contact your child’s health visitor if you think they need a BCG vaccination.
Who is this service for? We are for anyone who has TB, has symptoms of TB, or has had contact with someone who has TB. We are also able to give advice or information on TB.
How to access this service: Contact us on 03000 272280 or 03000 272281. Please leave a message if do not answer with your number and we will get back to you.
