An event to celebrate the start of Lung Health Checks in Hull took place at the KCOM Stadium on Friday 24th January, with around 80 people in attendance.
The ceremony began with introductory speeches from Phil Mettam, Chair of the Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance, and Dr Stuart Baugh, Programme Director for NHSE Targeted Lung Health Check Programme. A short film explaining what the programme hoped to achieve was followed by addresses by the Deputy Director (Operations) for the NHS Cancer Programme, before those in attendance were invited to tour the Lung Health Check mobile unit, which will be used to carry out the lung health checks in various communities in Hull throughout 2020 and 2021.
