Tuberculosis Screening To Be Spruced Up At Ports of Entry

The Health Protection Agency has raised doubts about the TB X-Ray screening arangements at the points of entry- Airport and Ports. // How effective is the screening for Tuberculosis infections at the Airport for people entering England, especially from countries that are reeling under the TB onslaught ?

According to offcial reports by the HPA, only about 27% of the total number of people entering United Kingdom are screened. This is indeed alarming as the remaining 73% go undetected.

The HPA has put forth some recommendations to enable consistent health service at all ports and airports. Heathrow and Gatwick Airports had very good facilities, but there are also other points of entry, which did not. HPA has assumed responsibility of supervising the arrangements for people arriving at international terminals.

Chief executive Professor Pat Troop said: "This is an important area of public health activity and the review lays the foundation for developing a comprehensive national approach to quality and standards for the service in a way that was not possible before."
