The South Hub was designed specifically to be a dedicated outpatient clinic for patients with TB or suspected TB.  Award winning actress/writer Dame Emma Thompson and her son Tindy Agaba opened the clinic in 2014.
In a video filmed at the South Hub, Emma and Tindy share a very personal experience of TB.
