Yet again there’s an article about poor health in men: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-11674950
And yet again, the implication is raised that men are responsible for this by not going to their GPs when they are ill as well as, of course, eating badly, drinking too much, smoking too much and not exercising enough.
It is a rather more balanced article than ones I have read in the past but still doesn’t address the issue that a man going to their GP with concerns will be made to feel like they shouldn’t be there.
It’s all very well to advise us to visit our doctors but rather pointless when they don’t want to see us when we get there.
