NHS Mansfield & Ashfield CCG has been selected to take part in the National Targeted Lung Health Checks Programme (TLHC). The programme objective is to identify the cohort of patients at high risk of having lung cancer and invite them to have a low dose CT, and are looking for suitably qualified providers to support in the delivery of the programme. The CGG is one of 14 CCGs selected nationally on the basis of its lung cancer mortality rate being amongst the highest in the country. The aim of the programme is to identify lung cancers at an earlier stage that is evidenced to result in better outcomes. It follows successful trials in Manchester, Liverpool and Nottingham. During the Manchester trial, 65% of lung cancers were diagnosed at stage 1 and 13% at stage 4, compared to 18% at stage 1 and 48% at stage 4 before the trial.
