This article was originally published in Clinica
The Scottish Executive has committed a further £780,000 ($1.4m) to extending the national network of men's health clinics. The investment announced today, part of a £4m programme, will be used in 2004-05 and 05-06 to support initiatives in the Borders, Lanarkshire and Western Isles regions of NHS Scotland. The aim of the so-called "well man" programme is to encourage males to consult their doctor for check-ups or with complaints. Only 68% of males (compared to 84% of females) have contact with their GP, according to a survey conducted last year. Coronary heart disease accounts for 22% of deaths in males, compared with 18% in females.
