Who we are
We are a team of nurses with specialist skills in caring, supporting and educating people about, and those living with, tuberculosis.
What we do
Our service works to improve outcomes for patients by offering support and leadership in managing, controlling, treating and preventing TB.
We provide care, education, support and information for patients in the community who have been diagnosed with TB. We have regular contact with our patients through clinic and home visits, as well as phone calls.
Our nurses provide TB screening in several Kent hospitals and community health settings. We work closely with respiratory consultants, paediatricians, pharmacists, microbiologists and other healthcare professionals to ensure a quick and accurate diagnosis.
In addition, we provide neonatal/child BCG vaccination clinics in Kent for people who meet Department of Health criteria – this excludes the school BCG service, which is provided through school nurses.
