Corby Lung Health Checks


Local people in Corby are being invited to take up the offer of a free NHS lung health check or MOT.

Anyone aged between 55 and 74 years old with a history of smoking who is registered with a GP in Corby will receive a letter from their Practice inviting them to make an appointment for a lung health check.

The health check is simple and straight forward. First you will have a telephone consultation with specially trained staff who will ask some questions about your general health and smoking history. Depending on your health and your history, you may be invited to have a telephone consultation with a specially trained nurse and a lung scan to check for anything abnormal. 

The lung health check can help spot any problems early – often before you even notice anything is wrong. If a problem with  your breathing or lungs is found early, treatment could be simpler and more successful. The video below explains in more detail.

 

So keep an eye out for your invite in the post! It will include all the details you need to book your free Lung Health Check.
