About us

TB Service North Central London is a coordinated TB service for all adults and children with suspected or known tuberculosis (TB). Treatment is provided regardless of where you live and immigration status.

Our specialist medical and nursing teams use the latest methods to test and treat people with suspected or known TB.

The aim of our service is to reduce the prevalence of new TB cases, improve outcomes and provide a better patient experience for people with TB in North Central London.

The service has two centres – one in the north of the region, based at North Middlesex University Hospital and one in the south of the region, based at The Whittington Hospital (part of Whittington Health).

Whittington Health is the lead provider for TB Service North Central London.
