We provide a full range of medical services for men of all ages, such as cardiovascular reviews, prostate and testicular cancer screening, sexual issues including erectile dysfunction and mental health advice. Regular checkups are the best way to stay on top of your health and wellbeing, helping to catch any early signs of disease.
On average, men go to their GP half as often as women. It's important to be aware of changes to your health, and to see your GP immediately if you notice something that's not right.
Male Health Resources
The ‘Spanner in the Works?’ website, from the Irish Men's Sheds Association, provides some key health information for men. Each health subject has one or more direct links to a relevant Irish key health organisation website and the website has been developed through collaborative partnerships with 40 key health organisations.

The Irish Men’s Sheds Association is an island-wide programme that aims to combat isolation and improve the wellbeing of Ireland’s men.
Based on the original Australian idea, the Irish Men’s Sheds Association encourages communities to develop their own safe haven, where men of all ages and walks of life can come to an informal meeting where skills are developed, shared and learned, and social connections are created.
The workshops can cover anything from woodwork, metalwork, crafts, gardening, art, or even choir groups. Men can visit their local ‘shed’ once or twice a week even for a cup of tea, their site explains. In a world where men’s mental health has been overlooked, the need for a place where men can express their thoughts with people who understand is badly needed.
