· 'A clinic where you can ask a simple question and get a decent answer instead of feeling like you have to be at death's door before you are worthy of a minute of time with a health professional.'

· 'A lot is done for women's health ­ breast cancer and cervical screening etc. Men's health is not seen as important.'

· 'Recognition that as men

don't go to GPs often they don't know the system, and some patience when it comes to explaining the procedures.'

· 'Get male GPs to change their attitude to men's health problems instead of making men feel they are wasting time and that we should expect it at our age.'
