PEOPLE-HULL: Primary care and community engagement to optimise time to presentation with lung cancer symptoms in Hull content
More people are diagnosed with and die from lung cancer in Hull than any other place in Yorkshire.
The aim of this research programme is to improve earlier diagnosis of lung cancer by getting people to see their doctor when they get/develop lung symptoms and getting GPs to see and refer them sooner.
The programme will develop a public/community campaign about lung cancer stories and symptoms then invite smokers and ex-smokers for lung health checks.
The programme will work with GP practices to make it easier for people to get GP appointments and referrals to chest X-ray if they have potential lung cancer symptoms.
