Lung tests

If you’re concerned about your lung health or are experiencing certain symptoms such as difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, or pain in the lungs, you may want to consider getting your lungs checked.

Lung function tests can help determine how well your lungs are working, and are helpful in diagnosing any issues.

We offer a number of diagnostic tests – Peak flow, spirometry, EarlyCDT-Lung blood tests and chest X-rays – which are performed quickly and efficiently at our relaxed city centre clinic by one of our highly qualified GPs.

There’s no waiting times or need for referral.

Tests available include:

Spirometry

We provide a range of spirometry tests at our city centre clinic. All spiromtery tests are carried out by one of our highly qualified GPs, who will be able to talk you through the results and discuss next steps.

A spiromtery test measures the amount of air you can breathe out in a forced breath, and can help to diagnose lung conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pulmoary fibrosis.

A spirometry test can be carried out within a 20 minute GP consultation with one of our friendly GPs.

GP consultation costs £55.
Spirometry costs £50.

EarlyCDT-Lung

Early CDT-Lung test is a blood test which can help detect lung cancer in it's early stages. The test works by detecting auto antibodies produced by the body to fight cancerous tumours. These antibodies can be detected up to four years before a clinical cancer diagnosis is possible*.

Research has shown that early CDT screening in high risk patients can save lives**.

Results of this simple blood test are returned within seven days.

An earlyCDT lung test can be carried out by one of our highly qualified GPs within a 20 minute GP consultation.

GP consultation costs £55.
EarlyCDT-Lung blood test costs £154.

A peak flow test measures how quickly you can blow air out of your lungs. It can indicate narrowed airways which are associated with conditions such as asthma.

Used regularly, it can also help to monitor asthma and whether your condition is worsening.

A peak flow can be carried out as part of a GP consultation by one of our friendly and highly qualified GPs.

GP consultation costs £55.
There is no additional charge for a peak flow.
