"Murrumbidgee Medicare Local Men's Health Event"

About: Rural Primary Health Service (Murrumbidgee Medicare Local)

(as the patient),

I attended a Men's Health event. It was informative and entertaining.

I have a number of health issues.

I realised after the men's Health night that the treatment for all, bar the heart/blood pressure, by my local GP had now seemed, in my opinion, patchy & reactive - unplanned, irregular & only occurring when I presented for something else. The phrase "your blood sugar/blood pressure is up a bit” was a regular feature during irregular consultations.

So I asked for a suggestion for another GP. I have since seen that GP a number of times and am very satisfied with the management plan he is developing. He told me that my lymphoma is cured, which lifted a huge weight off my mind.

I hope more men get the message at information sessions like these.
