TB is a preventable and treatable condition, but, if left untreated, can be life threatening.
Public Health England says treatment in London is successful, with over 85% of people completing treatment at 12 months - but that controlling the spread of the infection must remai9n a public health priority. Dr Yvonne Doyle went on to say vulnerable people are most at risk.
''People with social risk factors such as homelessness and drug or alcohol misuse still
account for a significant number of TB cases in London and the figures reinforce theimportance of NICE guidance on tackling TB among hard-to-reach groups, and of thededicated outreach services in London such as Find and Treat."
