TB Alert

Description:

TB Alert’s work in the UK focuses on making sure people with TB are diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible, and supporting them through treatment, to ensure that they don’t become seriously ill or pass TB on to others.

TB Alert's flagship programme The Truth About TB, brings together statutory bodies and voluntary organisations, and by working together, these groups are better able to raise awareness of TB within at-risk communities and support them to get the care they need.

Alongside The Truth About TB awareness-raising work, they also undertake a range of other activities in the UK:

  • offer peer support to people who are going through TB treatment through the TB Action Group;
  • help nurses to support TB patients though treatment by providing patient information leaflets, and grants to help vulnerable patients through this difficult time;
  • offer online TB training for GPs, practice nurses and nurse practitioners through the RCGP website, along with a TB Specialist Nurse Resource pack to use in GP practice meetings;
  • provide a TB helpline.
