Tuberculosis (TB) Nursing Service – North Yorkshire

The North Yorkshire Tuberculosis Nursing Service is a small, friendly team based in York covering the whole of North Yorkshire.  The service is delivered by Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust

We support patients undergoing treatment for active tuberculosis (TB) and latent TB infection (LTBI).

We offer screening to:

  • People who have been in contact with a person diagnosed with TB.
  • People who have arrived in the UK from a country where TB is common in the last five years.
  • We offer BCG vaccination to children over the age of one year, if vaccination was missed at birth.

We'll contact you if you have been recently diagnosed with active TB or latent TB infection.  We will telephone or write to you to invite you to be screened if you have been identified as a contact of TB or if we have received your details as a new GP registrant.  We accept referrals from any route, including via GPs.

If you are concerned about active TB or latent TB infection or you wish to discuss anything related to TB, TB screening or the BCG vaccination please contact the team directly and we would be very happy to talk to you.

Visiting update

To protect our patients, staff, visitors and the community, we are again restricting visitors to all our hospitals sites so please read our latest guidance for full details before coming to our hospitals.

The decision to restrict visitors during this time has been very difficult and made only after careful consideration as we witness wider social restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in light of the highly transmissible OMICRON variant.  The guidance will be reviewed regularly.
