Tell us what you know about tuberculosis (TB)

Posted 29/08/2017

Did you know that Reading has one of the highest rates of tuberculosis (TB) in the South-East of England? That’s why we’re asking people in Reading to take part in a special, anonymous survey between August and 31 October 2017.

The survey asks people what they know about TB symptoms, what makes people more likely to get it, how to get free NHS testing and how people can be treated.

Your views really matter because they will help Public Health officials decide if information about TB is getting out in the right way, to the right people.

Anyone can take part in the survey but we’d really like to hear from people who are aged 16-35, who have arrived to settle in England in the last five years, and who are from countries such as India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Romania. A full listing of countries is on our website.

You can complete the survey online or by phoning the Healthwatch Reading team on 0118 937 2295 to request a paper copy. If you want more information about TB after completing the survey, you can also read our summary of common questions and answers.
