Targeted Lung Health Check Programme

Residents who are aged between 55 and 74, who are current smokers or who have ever smoked, are being invited to take advantage of a new, free opportunity to have their lungs checked as part of a national NHS pilot called the Targeted Lung Health Check Programme.

This programme is being delivered by the North East London Cancer Alliance, working in partnership with Barts Health NHS Trust, Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, our local GPs, and InHealth, who are providing the scanner trucks, as well as resources to support the whole process for patients.

Lung checks are by invite only and letters are currently being sent out to those who are eligible. It is really important for people to follow the instructions in the letter and keep their appointment.
