Get involved Events Men's Health Week – 2-8 November 2020 To fundraise or donate to men's health projects please CLICK HERE With your help we want to raise awareness and funds for men’s health projects to support patients at the Lister, New QEII, Hertford County Hospital and the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. Your support could help to fund: Sponsorship of a Men's Health Nurse Champion who will be responsible for setting up and managing a support network to patients at Lister, raising awareness of Men's Health in our community to get men talking and inspire testing and earlier diagnosis of diseases such as prostate cancer. New cutting-edge laser equipment to remove tumours on the bladder. Upgrade and expansion of our current leading robotic equipment so we can perform the most complex surgical procedures on the prostate. Support group set up costs including venue, refreshments, marketing and promotion to expand our Men's Health support network at Lister. Dedicated counsellor for our male patients. Support packs to give out to patients at Lister. Items to enhance the experience for our male patients having consultations at Lister including a coffee machine, new seating, artwork/mural for walls, Ipad/devices. Education aids so our nurses can explain treatments to patients. Advanced training for our dedicated NHS Trust staff so they can continue to be leading in their field and deliver extraordinary care. Our Men's Health Fundraising Committee, which formed last year, is made up of local patients and healthcare professionals from the urology team at the Lister. They have come together to support our charity's quest to raise funds for specialist medical kit and equipment, support services, extra staff training and research so we can make a difference to treatment, care and experience for men in our community.
