Project Description

More people are diagnosed with and die from lung cancer in Hull than any other place in Yorkshire. Our aim is to improve earlier diagnosis of lung cancer by [1] getting people to see their doctor if they get lung symptoms and [2] getting GPs to refer people sooner. We will develop a public/community campaign about lung cancer stories and symptoms, then invite smokers and ex-smokers for Lung Health Checks. We will work with GP practices to increase referrals to x-ray for people with potential lung cancer symptoms and make it easier for people with lung symptoms to get appointments
