Our Cancer Prevention Team

November is lung cancer awareness month

Cancer is easier to treat if the disease is diagnosed early. Because of this we want to encourage people with these symptoms to get checked out by their GP.

Cobalt are working in partnership with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust to deliver the first commissioned lung cancer screening service in the UK.

This new mobile service will be based in the Manchester area and will be aimed at people with a smoking history. The service will be delivered from community locations, mainly supermarket carparks providing both an accessible and familiar location. Pilot studies have shown that lung cancer screening can save a significant number of lives by identifying cancers at a very early stage so the patient can be cured.

Cobalt are also working in partnership with Siemens Healthineers in order to provide the very lasted medical imaging technology, this will be the first mobile screening service in the world to use this technology.
