Our Challenges to Local Health Systems

We call on local health systems to:
  • Analyse all available data on men’s health and other equalities in your Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
  • Review men’s health at the Health and Wellbeing Board and reflect gender in your Health and Wellbeing strategy. Track delivery
  • Integrate drug and alcohol services with mental health. Offer joined up care for people with a dual diagnosis
  • Get to at least 50% male participation in NHS Health Checks – by designing to meet men’s needs and lifestyle – and outreach to the highest risk groups
  • Tailor health improvement programmes – especially for weight-loss – to reflect what works with men.
