Men are often neglectful of their personal health and long working hours often make medical attendance difficult. Men, especially over 40 years of age, are encouraged to attend their doctor regularly in order to identify and treat potential health risks before they become a problem.
There is a myth that men don’t visit their doctor. In fact most men have visited a doctor in the last twelve months. What is true is that men have shorter consultations with their GP and tend to see their GP later in the course of their illness. Men are also less likely than women to discuss issues such as anxiety and depression and sexual dysfunction.
Busy GPs still have time listen so discuss all symptoms and worries.
Appointments are available on Saturday mornings as well as evening appointments on Monday to Friday until 6pm.
