We have brought together four consultant specialists to give GPs and other primary care professionals an update on common men’s health problems.
All sessions will focus on recognising the symptoms, when to treat and when to refer.
The event is open to GPs, GP registrars, locums and nurse practitioners/practice nurses.

Problems related to men’s urogenital tract are commonly a quality of life matter for the patient and his partner, but at times these problems can be life threatening.

In this session Mr Bhanot will discuss the common problems of these patients in primary care.
