Lucas Offers Free Lung Testing at Greenwich Peninsular in Partnership with the British Lung Foundation
With around 10,000 people diagnosed with lung disease every day, and the prevalence of respiratory hazards in the construction industry, Lucas are proud to have recently offered free lung tests at Greenwich Peninsular in partnership with the British Lung Foundation.
This was a worthy exercise to raise awareness and to also encourage early identification of possible lung conditions; with 33 operatives choosing to speak to smoking cessation services and 8 being referred to their general practitioner for further investigation.
Lucas intends to run further free testing events in partnership with the British Lung Foundation and have already arranged dates for next year.
This is a great way for Lucas to recognise Lung Cancer Awareness Month & World COPD Day and to further the relationship with the British Lung Foundation, having renewed our support as a ‘Living Well Alliance’ partner earlier this year.
