A spirometry machine will also be available which can provide an analysis of how well the lungs are working.
Dr Keith Tattum, from Baddeley Green Surgery, said: "The prevalence of recognised lung disease locally is low, but with our industrial history we would expect it to be higher than the national average.
"The concern is there are people in the community who have undiagnosed, and hence untreated, lung disease."
Everyone is welcome to attend and visitors do not need to be patients of the surgery.
