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.

Lung Health Checks are now available in Wandsworth and Hounslow in addition to Hillingdon, Hammersmith and Fulham, Merton and Sutton. If you are aged 55-74 with a history of smoking, you will be receiving an invite letter in the post soon.

Lung Health Checks are completed remotely via telephone consultation. When making an appointment, we will arrange a convenient time for you to be called by one of our specialist nurses who will carry out the check with you. If you need a CT of your lungs, you will be sent an appointment to come along at a time that suits you.

Scans are taking place at the Royal Brompton Hospital and at our mobile scanner sites at Tesco Yiewsley and Tesco Cheam.

If you have any concerns or worries, please contact us to discuss them and we will do our utmost to make your appointment as safe as possible.
