Patients over 55 and under 75yrs, who have ever smoked will get an invitation for a Lung Health Check.
The aim of a Lung Health Check is to detect lung disease in its early stages when treatments are often simpler and more effective.
Invitations will be sent out in batches from November 2020, when you receive your invitation it is important to book your appointment.
Appointments are booked directly via the Lung Health Check Hub and not through the practice; the number for the Hub is shown in the letter.
The health check appointment will be done over the phone and will last approximately 20 mins.
Some patients may be referred for scan at Blackburn Hospital.
