Healthy Lungs

Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group is working with communities across Liverpool so that local residents have the opportunity to improve their lung health and so that we are able to help diagnose lung conditions early.

Our work will initially focus on Picton, Everton, Speke and Norris Green as part of a pilot, but we plan to roll this out across the whole city region in 2017.

Two key things will be happening in each of the areas:

  1. Breathe Freely community events, where you can talk to our team for advice on how to look after your lungs and receive a free NHS lung health check with a health professional. 
  2. For those people aged 58-70 years old who have a history of smoking, they will be invited to attend a lung health clinic at their GP surgery. After this appointment, if needed, patients will be offered a chest CT scan at a local hospital.
