The design of local TB services reflect local drivers such as the prevalence of TB. Some TB services are led by clinical nurse specialists, whereas others are delivered within a wider team i.e. respiratory or infection control teams. Whatever the make-up looks like, locally working across networks to share practice is important. The pandemic has highlighted the need to strengthen networks and, consequently, nurses have established virtual forums to support nursing teams to share issues and learning during this pandemic.
