It was great to meet with the Yorkshire Lung Screening Trial team, including Fazia and Jason, and to welcome their vans into our car park.
On their current visit, new patients are being seen as well as patients who are being followed up from a previous screening. Things are a little different this time - covid has introduced rigorous cleaning in between patients and caused a reduction in the number of possible appointments per day. The trial is funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research and led by Dr Matthew Callister, Respiratory Medicine Consultant at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. People are identified from the local area and are invited for screening through their GPs.
