Sebastian Schmidt: The UK lung health check programme diagnosed 3000 cases of lung cancer so far

Sebastian Schmidt, Head of Strategy and Medical Affairs Computed Tomography at Siemens Healthineers, shared a post by UK Lung Cancer Coalition, on LinkedIn:

“The UK lung health check programme diagnosed 3000 cases of lung cancer so far – despite being still a regional program, and national expansion ongoing.
For the vast majority of these patients, the early diagnosis was life-saving.”

Quoting UK Lung Cancer Coalition‘s post:

“It has recently been reported that the NHS lung health check programme has now diagnosed almost 3,000 people with lung cancer – three quarters at stage one or two.

The programme involves mobile trucks that go into the heart of communities to offer checks at shopping centres and supermarket car parks.
