Targeted Lung Health Checks in Greater Manchester

The Targeted Lung Health Check Programme is a new pilot scheme designed to identify signs of cancer at an early stage when it is much more treatable – ultimately saving move lives

This programme is being offered to people between the ages of 55 and 74 who are current or former smokers

Those eligible will be sent a letter or a text message to invite them for a lung health check

The lung health check finds out how well a participant’s lungs are working and hopes to identify problems early

Most of the time no issue is found, but if cancer or an issue with a participant’s breathing or lungs is found early, treatment could be simpler and more successful.

To date, 400 people have been diagnosed with Lung Cancer earlier through Targeted Lung Health Checks in the Greater Manchester area

If you receive an invite, please attend your appointment so we can help you achieve #healthylungs 💙
