The Whittington Hospital

Our specialist medical and nursing teams use the latest methods to test and treat adults and children with suspected or known tuberculosis (TB).

TB can cause serious health problems, but it is curable with proper treatment.

How to access our service

You may be referred to our service by your GP or other healthcare professional.

If you suspect you or your children have either been in contact with or have symptoms of TB, you can refer yourself to our service or attend our walk-in clinic on a Monday or Friday. You do not need an appointment to attend our walk-in clinics (please see opposite for opening times).

You can also refer yourself to our service by contacting us directly.

What we do

We provide care for all patients with TB or suspected TB including specialist care of patients with multidrug resistant TB (MDR TB), TB in children and those with HIV-TB.

We provide full diagnostic and treatment outpatient services (treatment that does not require an overnight stay). Our specialist team provides advice and care for those patients who are admitted to hospital with TB.

We offer TB incident investigation and screening of people who have been in contact with TB. Our team has outreach workers and a social care team to support patients with TB to successfully complete their treatment.

All of our patients are assigned a named case worker to ensure personalised and effective care. Treatment is provided regardless of immigration status.
