Description:
I am pleased to welcome this report on men's health in primary care, which is both inform· ative and innovative. The study confirms that men are interested in their health but that barriers do exist in terms of attitudes and access. We must promote the fact that the health system is interested in men and in their health. It is encouraging to see primary care playing an increased role in men's health and it is also important that men see primary care as an appropriate setting for health services for themselves. Men have unacceptably high rates of cardiovascular disease cancer and suicide and so everyone needs to playa part in improving the health of men. I wish to congratulate the team in the GP practice in Tallaght for engaging in this work and for producing a report which I hope will be of interest to everyone who is committed to improving our health services for men. I am delighted that the South Western Area Health Board has been able to support this project, which has provided so many insights into the health of men. This information will help inform the development of services as we go forward.
