Stereotypes tell us that men avoid doctors. When it comes to prevention and early detection, men’s health often takes a back seat to women’s health. As we see statistically, men pay less attention to their health than women do. Men also are more likely to smoke, drink, take more risks, and generally lead a less healthy lifestyle. That’s why we are here to help.

Your local Heath Plus Pharmacists run a comprehensive men’s health service that makes treatments convenient and accessible without a trip to your GP.
