PROSTATE CANCER AWARENESS MONTH 

With June being Men’s Health Month, we are taking the opportunity to heighten awareness of preventative health and encourage the early detection and treatment of Prostate Cancer.

We therefore encourage male members to consult their general practitioner about Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) screening for prostate cancer as they enter middle age.
