Tuberculosis Services

Appointment Information


The Tuberculosis Program staff at the Chest Clinic are available to assist people who are:

  • concerned about their TB status
  • suspected by the SA TB Services to be at a higher risk of having TB
  • suspected of having been in contact with persons with active TB
  • directed by the Department of Immigration as a new permanent arrival to Australia to undergo a further TB check up

Some services require appointments and these can be organised by telephone, fax, post or in person. A referral from a medical practitioner, received prior to the appointment, is preferable.

Please ensure you bring any recent private chest xrays and relevant test results.

Interpreter services are available but need to be pre-arranged. Please mention this need when the appointment is being made.
