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 specialist health care advisor.

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 invite you to a telephone screening have a date and time and will take place over the phone (15 mins) with a specialised health care advisor.

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.
