Lung Health Check

Lung Health Check

Patients aged between 55 and 74 and who smoke or have ever smoked, will get an invitation for a Lung Health Check over the next few months.

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 Spring 2021. When you receive your invitation, it is really important to book your appointment.

Appointments are booked directly with the Lung Health Checks team and not through the practice – the number to contact will be included in your invitation letter.

The Lung Health Check appointment will be done over the phone and will last approximately 30 mins.

Some patients may be referred for a CT scan at Blackburn Hospital.

You will receive an information leaflet with your invitation letter. For more information about Lung Health Checks in Blackburn with Darwen, please visit: https://lungcheckslsc.co.uk/
