TB Screening

NHS England recommend that people who have moved to the UK from countries with a high incidence of Tuberculosis (TB) undergo routine screening for TB.
This includes people who were born in a country with a high incidence of TB but have been living in another country.

If you indicate on your registration form that you were born in a country with a high incidence of TB then we will automatically refer you to the Infection Prevention & Control Team, who will contact you to offer you TB screening.

If you are not sure if you were born in a country with a high incidence rate of TB, you can check by clicking HERE to be redirected to the UK government page.

Symptoms of TB to look out for are:

  • A cough that lasts more than 3 weeks
  • Coughing up blood
  • Extreme tiredness or lack of energy
  • Night sweats
  • High temperature (Fever)
  • Losing weight for no obvious reason

If you have any concerns or wish to discuss this further please contact the surgery on 01244 564319.
