Latest UK Tuberculosis rates revealed in report by Public Health England

21st August 2013

Benenden health was founded in 1905 to provide treatment for people suffering from Tuberculosis (TB), a disease which was rife at the time.

Fast forward one hundred years later and whilst the organisation now provides access to a range of discretionary healthcare services, benenden health continues to remain interested in stories that involve TB. 

Public Health England have today published their UK-wide statistics on TB levels which show that whilst rates of the disease have stabilised over the past seven years, the levels of TB in the UK remains high compared to most other Western European countries.

Public Health England state that 8,751 cases were reported in 2012 which gives an incidence rate of 13.9 per 100,000 population. Despite efforts to prevent TB and provide treatment we are still seeing London accounting for the highest proportion of cases in the UK (39%) followed by the West Midlands PHE Centre area (12%).

The full report can be found on the Public Health England site

It’s a little known fact about benenden health, that treatment for TB is still one of our contractual services – meaning that we will always assist members with treatment for TB should they contract it.
