BCG in NHSGGC

The PHPU organises hospital and community clinics to provide BCG immunisation to over 2000 babies and young children per year in accordance with Green Book recommendations, i.e. BCG should be offered to infants with a parent or grandparent who was born in a country where the annual incidence of TB is 40/100,000 or greater.
