Full description:

There are over 48,000 new cases of lung cancer every year in the UK. More than half of these are diagnosed at a late stage which considerably reduces how long people live.

People from deprived areas are more commonly diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer because they are not aware of early symptoms and so do not go to the hospital until it is too late.

We’re looking for 5 people aged 55-74 years to take part in a 1h 1:1 interview with a researcher via Zoom. No experience needed!

University of Manchester

Manchester has a reputation for excellence in lung cancer diagnostics, treatment and research – we are home to Cancer Research UK’s Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence. It was this strong reputation that led the Macmillan Cancer Improvement Partnership to task us with transforming outcomes for patients with lung cancer. Our research has helped to change national policy regarding lung cancer screening and improve screening uptake in hard-to-reach communities in need.
