Coventry and Rugby Lung Health Checks
Our Lung Health Checks are like an MOT for your lungs.
If you are aged between 55-74 and smoke, or have ever smoked, you may be invited for a free NHS Lung Health Check.
These will take place over the phone with a specialised nurse.
Most people will find out their lungs work fine, some may benefit from further tests or treatment such as a CT scan at our mobile unit.
Finding any lung problems early can make a big difference.
When will I be invited and what is a Lung Health Check?
If you qualify for a FREE NHS Lung Health Check, you will receive an invite letter through the post.
This letter will have a date and time where one of our specialised nurses will call you for your Lung Health Check. This consultation should take about 15 minutes.
During the telephone call you will be asked questions about your overall lung health, lifestyle, family and medical history.
You may then be invited to have a lung CT scan at our special mobile unit. This checks for early signs of lung cancer and is called lung cancer screening.
Our special mobile unit is being run by our partner, InHealth.
InHealth are the UK’s largest specialist provider of diagnostics and healthcare solutions.
You can find more information in this booklet and these FAQs.
