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.
