Scotland has announced plans to develop a TB strategy focusing on surveillance, screening and laboratory services, among other issues. The announcement was made today, to mark World TB Day, which also saw the publication of a Scottish version of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines "Clinical diagnosis and management of TB and measures for its prevention". Public health minister Shona Robison said that a working group of experts, including from the UK-wide Health Protection Agency, will be expected to draw up a draft of the strategy by the end of this year.
