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.

"Going from being a trainee to being a GP can be a really difficult transition. Taking on the administration associated with things like locum work can make that even more difficult.

Ali from LocumDeck showed me how to use their tool to simplify and automate the invoicing and locum form process to save me time and energy. With the free one-year membership for new GPs this was a real no-brainer that meant I could spend more time on the things that really matter, and less time filling in paperwork.

I can't thank Ali enough for her help and the time she has saved me."
