Real Men Know When to Seek Help


June is Men's Health Month, and it's the perfect time to remind ourselves that taking care of our health is a true sign of strength. So let’s break the stigma around men’s health and seek the help we need.

Taking control of your health involves a few key steps:

Prostate Health

If you're 50 or older, keeping an eye on your prostate health is crucial.

A prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening can help detect any issues early, significantly improving treatment outcomes.

As a GetSavvi Health member with access to Day-to-day Benefits, you’re entitled to one PSA screening every two years.

Essential Health Tests

Knowing your numbers can genuinely save your life. It's important to get regular checks for:

  • Blood Pressure: This check is quick and painless, and can be done at your local GP or even a few pharmacies. Keeping an eye on your blood pressure can prevent heart disease and strokes.
  • Glucose Levels: A blood glucose test will help spot diabetes early, so you can manage it with lifestyle changes and, if necessary, medication.
  • Cholesterol: High cholesterol has no symptoms but can lead to heart problems. A simple blood test will give you a clear picture of your cholesterol levels.

Members who have access to our Pharmacy Consultations benefit, you can easily get these tests done and keep track of your health stats.

Mental Health Support

Your mental health is just as vital as your physical health. Recognising when to seek help can prevent crises, reduce stigma and promote well-being. It's vital for men to understand that seeking support is a strength, not a weakness.

GetSavvi Health’s Member Wellness Programme, available to all members, provides access to counsellors, so when you need someone to talk to, we’ve got you covered.

Stay on top of these essential health screenings, and you’ll be in the best position to catch any issues early and keep living your best life.

At GetSavvi Health, we’re here to support you every step of the way.
