Tuberculosis

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 23 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the incidence of tuberculosis per 100,000 people was in each primary care trust area in the most recent period for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. (270013)

Data for rates of tuberculosis (TB) by primary care trust (PCT) for 2005 are provided in the following table. Data for 2006 will be available by August 2009. Data for 2007 are not yet available.

The highest rates of TB are concentrated in London, Leicester, Birmingham and Manchester, reflecting the diverse demography of those populations.

Hertfordshire PCT, which includes Hemel Hempstead, is in the lowest band rate.
