Nottingham and Nottinghamshire NHS Lung Health Checks



If you are aged 55 to 74 and your GP has a record of you being a smoker or having ever smoked,
you will be invited by letter for your FREE NHS Lung Health Check. Think of it as an MOT for your lungs.



This service is currently available to people registered at GP Practices in
Nottingham City and Mansfield & Ashfield


Introduction

Most people will find out that their lungs are working fine. Some people may benefit from further tests or treatment either from their GP or Hospital Doctors. When it comes to lung health, spotting problems early can make a big difference.

Lung Health Checks will take place over the telephone but you may also be invited for a lung scan. These will be in convenient community locations so they are local and easy to get to.

The Lung Health Checks is a multi-year programme which will be gradually introduced in stages across our community. You will receive an invitation letter in the post when your GP practice is being invited.
