TB Van coming to Ealing!

The Mobile X Ray Unit will be at Ealing RISE, Central Hub, 99-103 Broadway, West Ealing, W13 9BP on Thursday 5th November between 11am – 3pm.

TB is curable! You are at greater risk of TB if you:

  • are homeless
  • use drugs and alcohol
  • have been in prison

The symptoms of TB are:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Weight loss
  • Feeling tired and unwell

A chest X-ray can detect TB before you feel unwell

  • it is free and instant
  • it only takes a few minutes
  • you don’t have to undress

What happens if your X-ray is not normal?

  • You will be seen by the local Chest or TB Clinic

How is TB cured?

  • By taking a complete course of antibiotics!  If the treatment is not completed the disease will return!
