Man MOT comes to Wood Green

Men are encouraged to drop in for a pit stop all week 11-15 November 2014 at the Wood Green Mall shopping centre in Haringey.

The event is designed to promote the Man MOT service, a free one-stop shop for men in Haringey to ask GPs about their health using text chat and email. No appointment. No names - anonymous and confidential. Just log on at manmot.co.uk.

You can find the Men’s Health Forum along with their partners Haringey Council and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation outside Cineworld on the first floor of the centre 11-15 November and find out all about it and other health-related services in the area. You can also enter our competition to win a tablet - ideal for visiting manmot.co.uk.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
