Lung Health Checks in Blackpool and Blackburn with Darwen
Your lungs work hard for you every minute of your life. As you get older it's worth getting them checked out.
Everyone aged between 55 and 74 who is registered with a GP in either Blackpool or Blackburn with Darwen and have ever smoked will be invited for a new free NHS lung health check.
Run by specialist nurses, lung health checks aim to find out how well your lungs are working and give you the reassurance that they are healthy, or could help detect problems early.
If lung cancer, or another problem with your breathing or lungs, is found early, treatment could be simpler and more successful.
