Headlines - embargo Monday 9 June
The Men's Health Forum is calling for health services targeted at men to be delivered through the workplace. It wants:
Investment by business and the NHS in initiatives that deliver 'male friendly' health improvement services in the workplace.
The establishment of local planning partnerships.
A more flexible NHS. Many services traditionally delivered in NHS settings should be taken into the workplace (eg. basic health checks, screening services, routine GP appointments).
A formal structure for the dissemination of existing good practice, including training opportunities for key staff on working with men.
Full gender impact assessment of policy developments arising from Dame Carol Black's recent review , including specific consideration of the potential of workplace health improvement initiatives to help address men's less effective use of other forms of health services.
