Why men need to have a health check up

A health check up can discover potential health problems before they develop into more serious chronic illness.

Your doctor will let you know what your health check should cover depending on your age and genetic history, but it could include a review of things like your blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol levels.

How do I arrange a health check up?

Talk to your GP about having a health check.
