Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

UK's largest lung screening trial

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer in Yorkshire. The mobile lung screening units are part of a collaborative approach between charity Yorkshire Cancer Research, Leeds Teaching Hospitals and Leeds Lung Health check. The mobile lung screening units will provide screening to 7,000 people in a bid to detect the early signs of lung cancer. 

Dr Matthew Callister, Consultant Respiratory Medicine at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust says: “The Lung Health Checks carried out in the mobile screening units will enable us to detect lung disease including cancer at an early stage when treatments are much more effective."
