Men's Health

"A men's health issue is a disease or condition unique to men, more prevalent in men, more serious among men, for which risk factors are different for men, or for which different interventions are required for men"


Men in Ireland experience a disproportionate burden of ill health. Our aim in Ayrfield Medical Practice is to create an environment, physically and psychologically, which will allow for ease of consultations for men. 


We offer advice on all aspects of your health and wellbeing, and also offer well man screening, which includes a thorough personal history, family history of relevant illnesses, examination including weight, height, body mass index, blood pressure, ECG (heart tracing) plus prostate or testicular examination if appropriate. You will also have fasting bloods taken.


We offer a full screening service for sexually transmitted infections (STI Screening). Unfortunately there are a large number of such infections in circulation, many of which can be picked up easily by men or women.  In many cases you may not even know you are infected so therefore can pass on an infection to a partner without realising it. 


The men’s health consultation can be quite extensive and the doctors will be open to discuss a huge array of topics some of which men may feel are embarrassing and find it difficult to talk about. Our earnest hope is that at all times by our demeanour and openness that we will allay those fears.

If you have any queries regarding you can contact your G.P. in Ayrfield Medical Practice for an appointment on 056 7721320.
