Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) TB services in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire are provided in partnership with the Bristol Royal Infirmary. Clinics operate at both hospitals, supported by a multidisciplinary team of specialist TB nurses and a pharmacist.

Referrals for assessment for latent TB can be made routinely via the NHS electronic referrals system. Patients thought to have possible active TB should be referred urgently via eRS and a highlighted by a phone call to our secretary – we aim to see such cases within 1 week.

Hospitals referring complex or resistant TB should speak to the ID registrar on call via switchboard on 0117 9505050.

We have excellent links with other specialist teams to provide comprehensive management for TB inpatients and outpatients.
