Nice | Tuberculosis (TB)

Nice | Tuberculosis (TB)

This is an updated guideline from NICE on managing tuberculosis. I guess the relevance will be largely related to where you work. There isn’t any really big change here, but there are lots of things that I wasn’t aware of, so I will do a general summary of the guideline. There is a lot more detail in the guideline itself to refer to if needed – I have just given a broad-brush overview.


There are a lot of definitions in this guideline that you need to understand for it to make any sense.

High Incidence Countries – any country with an incidence of tuberculosis over 40 per 100,000 per year. A list of high incidence countries can be found on the government’s website.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
