What is the TLHC Programme
The Targeted Lung Health Checks (TLHC) programme has been set up by NHS England to improve early diagnosis and survival for those diagnosed with cancer. It targets those most at risk of lung cancer. Following the lung health check those assessed as high risk will be offered a low dose Computerised Tomography (CT) scan.
There are a number of areas in England where NHS Lung Health Checks are either taking place or starting soon.
