Life-saving Lung Health Checks come to Wakefield

Residents most at risk of lung disease in Wakefield are reaping the benefits of a pioneering health check programme being run from their local GP practices.

Around 100 patients attended the Church View Medical Centre on Langthwaite Road in South Kirkby to receive their ‘lung MOT’ during the first week of a targeted lung health check pilot programme led by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance, in partnership with Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Conexus Healthcare are being commissioned to deliver the life-saving checks at scale across three practices in the east of Wakefield.
