Our services

Oxfordshire TB Service offers an outpatient service for individuals suspected and diagnosed with latent/active TB.

We specialise in supporting those with complex medical needs such as HIV, paediatric TB and multi-drug resistant TB.

We do this through face to face appointments, telephone consultations and home visits where appropriate.

TB nurses also support individuals diagnosed with TB while in hospital.

We offer TB screening for anyone who has had close contact with someone diagnosed with TB, or for anyone concerned they may have encountered the bacteria.

We can offer advice and information for the public, health professionals and GPs.

We offer the BCG vaccination only to those who meet specific criteria outlined in NICE guidelines and the Green Book.

Unfortunately, we do not offer screening for the purposes of travel, visas, or immigration.
