Pfizer launches online men's health clinic

Pfizer has launched ManMOT, an online health clinic providing men in the UK with confidential access to a GP, every Monday from 6pm to 11pm

Pfizer has launched ManMOT (Monday Opportunity to Talk), an online health clinic providing men in the UK with confidential access to a GP, every Monday from 6pm to 11pm.

The GP led service aims to tackle the reluctance of men to discuss sexual health issues and was launched following research commissioned by Pfizer, in partnership with leading UK health organisations which found men would rather turn to the internet than their GP for advice regarding sexual confidence or performance.

The weekly surgery is manned by two GPs - Dr Gerhard Holzmayr, a GP with 26 years experience working in all areas of general practice, with a special interest in urology, andrology and sexual medicine; and Dr Seema Jani, who has experience working in all areas of general practice including adult psychiatry, cardiology, obstetrics, gynaecology and endocrinology. Her special interests include family planning and dermatology.

Sex and relationship expert Tracey Cox and Relate counsellors will also be hosting a series of specialist sexual health and relationship clinics.

Dr Berkeley Phillips, medical director at Pfizer said: "We know there are a lot of men out there avoiding their GP completely, leaving health issues untreated until they require immediate medical attention. This may lead to serious medical conditions going undiagnosed. We're hoping the provision of ManMOT will finally give men the opportunity to talk – particularly those who don't have the time, or are too embarrassed to visit their GP."

ManMOT includes an interactive waiting room where men can complete an online health quiz while waiting for a slot with a GP or at a time when the online 'surgery' is closed.

The online surgery is funded by Pfizer and is supported by National Obesity Forum, Men's Health Forum, Sexual Advice Association, Relate, HEART UK and Diabetes UK and is designed to enhance existing health services rather than replace them.
