Our Challenges to General Practice

We call on GPs to:
  • Collect and regularly review gendered performance data for every area of the practice’s work
  • Make sure services, including screening and routine appointments, are as accessible as possible for men (and women) in full-time and shift work
  • Assign a practice and CCG lead for men’s health
  • Be especially sensitive to stigmatised problems like mental health and eating disorders
  • Train your organisation to understand men’s health issues and deal more effectively with men.

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.
