Our challenges to NHS England

We call on NHS England to:
  • Have a national Men‘s Health Policy
    Including a national strategy for men’s mental health
  • Drive access – don’t wait for men to engage
    Ensure primary care, mental health and screening work for full-time workers
    Not just for one-off conditions: 40% of men with long-term conditions work full-time
  • Support research
    Mental Health, Men and Cancer – especially more targeted screening and early diagnosis
  • Join up care for people with drug, alcohol and mental health problems
  • Build gender into performance and outcome reporting
    Align incentives to drive change.

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.
