Tuberculosis community nurse-led service
More than 4,500 people in Lambeth and Southwark have beaten Tuberculosis since the boroughs’ TB service, now run by Guy’s and St Thomas’ was launched in 1994.
Guy's and St Thomas' community team| runs TB clinics at St Thomas' Hospital, King's College Hospital, and Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. We provide a range of free and confidential services including:
- Screening for tuberculosis
- BCG vaccinations for contacts only
- Support with medication
- Advice on how to manage your illness
- Continuing care assessment
- Referral where necessary.
To raise awareness of TB, the team runs events in venues across Lambeth and Southwark including community centres, GP surgeries and day centres. Staff also visit patients at home or in other locations that are more convenient to them.
