This is a unique offer to check your lungs to detect any lung cancers early – this is a pilot but will probably be rolled out nationally but Gateshead have been chosen to roll this out first. Only those under 75 and patients with a record of smoked in the past will be invited. (https://youtu.be/AaUU2t8Ks7s) and include a link to our website (www.yourlunghealthng.nhs.uk).
A number of Fell Cottage patients will be receiving a letter about a ‘Targeted Lung Health Check’. This is an NHS service to check your lungs. Please consider taking up this offer as it can find lung health problems before you get any symptoms.
