Action on healthy lungs

Today, the government announced an additional 20 NHS lung truck sites, offering life-saving health checks and ensuring hundreds of people get an earlier diagnosis.   

  • Thanks to our mobile NHS mobile trucks, 600 people across the country have been diagnosed with lung cancer earlier. 
  • The government has now pledged a further 20 NHS lung truck sites with capacity to invite 750,000 more people at increased risk of lung cancer, in efforts to catch thousands more cancers at an earlier stage. 
  • This community scheme will ensure hundreds of people get an earlier diagnosis, allowing them to get treatment as soon as possible while supporting the NHS to bust the Covid backlog.
