Men's Health Week 15-21 June 2020

This year Mens Health week highlights the importance of taking the time to have regular check ups with a general practitioner and regular check-ins with your loved ones. This week is an opportunity to grow our understanding of the health issues impacting men, to explore the unique challenges men face in managing their physical and mental health and to promote strategies that break down barriers to good health.
