On transfer deadline day, I became the latest big name signing for Men United, Prostate Cancer UK’s call for men to join together in a movement against the common enemy of prostate cancer.
I’m backing their ‘Men United v Prostate Cancer’ campaign, which uses the language of sport to engage men in the battle against this disease.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is predicted to be the most common cancer overall by 2030. Despite this we know that the quality of care and support men with the condition receive varies throughout Scotland.
To address this, I have previously called on NHS Boards to implement Prostate Cancer UK’s excellent Quality Checklist, and reiterate that call. Furthermore, I am delighted to sign for Men United v Prostate Cancer. It’s a big ask but, working together, I know we can win this.
