The West London Lung Health Check project has re-opened.
Lung Health Checks are now performed remotely via telephone so as to comply with Government guidance on social distancing and unnecessary travel.
When making an appointment, you will be given a time for a call back where we will perform the Lung Health Check remotely. If you need a CT scan of your lungs, you will be sent an appointment for you to have your scan at a convenient time.
Lung Health Checks are for current or ex-smokers aged between 55 and 75.
West London Lung Health Checks are a free service currently available for patients at participating GPs in both Hillingdon, and Hammersmith and Fulham.
During the telephone consultation you will be be able to talk to a health professional who will go through a series of questions specially designed to assess your risk of developing lung problems.
Lung health checks are quick and simple. They are a good way of spotting lung-related problems early on, possibly before you’ve even noticed anything.
