North Central London TB Network

Whittington Health 

Would you like to come and join a forward thinking, innovative service which offers diverse challenges and opportunities for working?

The North Central London TB Service is provided by Whittington Health. We are a multi disciplinary team providing high quality services for people receiving TB treatment, their contacts and the wider community across the boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.

Our TB services are based in the outpatient setting but we provide a service across the acute and primary interface. You will be expected to work across the sector both as part of your learning experience and in response to changing patient and service needs.

Tuberculosis often affects vulnerable people with complex health and social needs, including homelessness, drug and alcohol dependence, or people who are in prison. Experience of working with these vulnerable populations would be an advantage.
