This quality standard covers preventing, identifying and managing latent and active tuberculosis (TB) in children, young people and adults. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement. It does not cover areas of national policy, such as the UK Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunisation programme.

Keeping quality standards up to date
