Targeted lung health checks in Greenwich and Southwark
Targeted Lung Health Check
The Targeted Lung Health Check programme is a national NHS pilot that is being trialled in Southwark and Greenwich. It is being offered to 55 to 74 year olds who have ever smoked. People in this group are at greater risk of developing lung cancer, so a lung health check helps us spot early signs of cancer when it is more treatable.
Following an initial conversation with a healthcare professional and, if needed, a simple scan of your lungs, the lung health check can help spot the early warning signs of potential diseases and cancers.
