Find out the latest news and developments from the West London Lung Health Check Project.
One year on: Free NHS lung health checks for local people in Sutton
The West London Lung Health Check service has expanded and begun to operate in Sutton.
Patients from participating GP practices in the borough have started receiving invitations for a free Lung Health Check. Those patients who are eligible for a CT scan of their lungs are now able to have their scan at our mobile CT scanner located in the car park of Tesco Sutton Cheam Extra.
The state of the art Siemens CT scanner is able to image the whole lungs in a matter of seconds, allowing for quick and speedy diagnosis of any lung problems.
We are working with Age UK to support lung health check participation
An exciting new collaboration is enlisting the knowledge and expertise of community development workers to help support and improve access to Targeted Lung Health Checks in west London.
We are working with Age UK and H4All to promote free NHS lung health checks and increase participation in Hammersmith and Fulham, Hillingdon, and Sutton.
