Latent Tuberculosis testing

The Liverpool TB team run a clinic at Brownlow Health @ Pembroke Place once a week. Patients will be identified according to risk and invited to come in for testing.

This programme aims to identify new migrants 16 to 35 year olds who recently arrived in England (i.e. in past five years) from countries with a high incidence of Tuberculosis. Testing is done by a blood test, and those with positive results are referred to secondary TB services for further testing and treatment. 

More general information about TB can be found here, including a link to a map of high incidence countries.

Please note that eConsults are switched off when capacity is reached, and a banner will appear above when this happens.
This is generally around 1-2pm each day but can be sooner if demand is very high.

Urgent problems will always still be attended to, and phone lines remain open for urgent problems even when routine capacity is reached.
