The West London Lung Health Check project is still operating!
Lung Health Checks are now performed remotely via telephone so as to comply with Lockdown 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.
New measures have been put in place for patients who are coming in for a CT scan to protect you – 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.
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.
