North Central London TB Service responds to COVID19
The COVID pandemic has affected all of us, at home and at work, in different ways. Everyone will have their own personal experiences. These images represent how the NCL TB team has changed their ways of working to continue to care for our patients and demonstrate our flexibility to work where clinically needed within the wider NHS. We should be proud of our contribution.
