Abstract The evidence-based TB Strategy was launched in January 2015 with three aims: to reduce TB incidence, reduce inequalities and eliminate TB as a public health problem. Supporting these aims are 10 'areas for action'. These centre on improving and strengthening TB care and control.One year on, the Strategy has achieved “evidence into action” and has successfully:- Setup a National TB Programme supporting seven TB Control Boards that cover the nine PHE Centres- Created a national TB Service Specification that TB Control Boards are localising to review services and identify gaps- Initiated new migrant latent TB infection testing and treatment programmes, resourced by NHSE with £10m in 2015/16 and a further £10m in 2016/17 - Supported LTBI programmes with resources, including FAQs and training materials - Delivered online interactive data, in the PHE Fingertips tool, to support TB commissioning and monitoring - Reviewed the TB nursing workforce - Created 'Task and Finish' groups, to work up the other 'areas for action'TB Control Boards, supported by the national TB team have been working across NHS and PHE and include representation from Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS TB teams, Local Authorities and others. They have developed local priorities and work plans to implement the Strategy.The implementation has provided opportunities for innovation across the whole TB patient pathway with the learning applicable to other disease areas. This includes working with primary care, contracting and commissioning processes and working with patients and communities affected by TB.
