PATIENT NOTICE – TUBERCULOSIS (TB)
If you have come into contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with TB and are worried that you might be infected you should not come into the surgery.
If the contact was in the work place then you should ask your employer for clarification of the situation in the first instance. Your employer should have made contact with Public Health England who will normally arrange for someone to visit the workplace to undertake tests of co-workers of the infected person.
If you are not satisfied with your employer’s response or the contact was outside of the workplace then you can either contact Public Health England direct on 0300 303 8537 or via email using the following email address EastofEnglandHPT@phe.go.uk, or you can book a telephone appointment with a GP or ANP to arrange a referral to the specialist TB clinic at Basildon Hospital.

SystmOnline is a portal for patients to access information about their care at any time of day and from anywhere they have an internet connection. This has been introduced as a way to keep patients better informed and more involved with their care.
SystmOnline offers registered patients the following –
- Limited access to your medical record. This includes information on allergies, current repeat medication, any acute medication recently issued and some test results.
- Repeat prescription ordering. SystmOnline will show you all active repeat medications allowing you to easily select the items that you require.
