Target Lung Health Checks

Posted on February 12th, 2024

The Targeted Lung Health Check (TLHC) is coming to the Wirral from March 2024. Patients aged 55-74 yrs old who have a history of smoking will receive a text message (or letter) from the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital inviting them to a Lung Health Check, which takes place over the phone. After this appointment, patients may be offered a chest CT scan locally hospital for further investigations, if required.

If you have opted out of record sharing you will not receive an invite as we are unable to share your data. If you wish to opt back in to data sharing please contact the surgery.
