We are part of a new pilot aiming to identify lung cancer as soon as possible to ensure treatment can be given at the earliest opportunity.
If you are aged between 55 and 74 and have ever smoked you may be invited for screening at a mobile van - please attend if you can!

The Practice shares your lung health related data with the lung health check service operated by Somerset, Wiltshire, Avon and Gloucestershire (SWAG) Cancer Alliance and InHealth (commissioned by NHS England).
This supports your invitation for a lung health check appointment (where you are eligible) and possible CT scan by the lung health check team.
This data may be shared with your local hospital trust to support further treatment and with other healthcare professionals involved in your care.
