People who live in Hull aged from 55 to less than 75, who smoke or used to smoke and have a Hull GP will be offered a new FREE NHS lung health check. Run by specially-trained nurses from a mobile unit located in the community, lung health checks aim to find out how well your lungs are working.
A lung health check can give you the reassurance that your lungs are healthy, or can help find problems early – often before you notice anything is wrong. If lung cancer, or another problem with your breathing or lungs, is found early, treatment could be simpler and more successful.
If you are eligible for a lung health check, you will receive a letter from your GP, inviting you to make an appointment, at a time convenient for you.
