A lung health check is an MOT for your lungs. Anyone in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent aged 55 to 74, who has ever smoked, may be entitled to a FREE lung health check.

As there are often no symptoms of lung cancer in the early stages, the checks can help find problems early – often before you notice anything is wrong. Around seven in 10 cancer patients are currently being diagnosed too late to be cured, so these checks really can save more lives.
