I can help organisations of all types (public, private and third sectors), in the UK and internationally, through:



Developing the expertise of workforces (clinical, public health, occupational health, etc) in understanding and responding to the health needs of men and boys.

I have delivered training to a wide range of audiences including health trainers, GPs, hospital doctors, nurses, se

rvice managers and commissioners, health policymakers and public health specialists. I led a Department of Health-funded project to develop a validated men’s health training programme for the NHS workforce and was a member of the advisory group that helped devise the Royal College of General Practitioners’ Curriculum Statement on Men’s Health.


Public speaking

Talking to professional and lay audiences about the widest range of men’s health issues at conferences, seminars, public meetings, webcasts, radio or TV broadcasting, etc.

Peter Baker, House of Commons, 29 October 2015

I am an experienced public speaker having appeared many times on television and radio and presented regularly to conferences and seminars across the UK and Europe, including at the World Congress on Men’s Health. To see a video clip of me speaking about men’s use of primary care services on BBC Breakfast, click here. My speech at the parliamentary launch of Salt Awareness Week 2011 can be viewed here.


Policy, strategy and service development

Advising organisations on how best to address the health of men and boys in policy and strategy as well as, for example, improving men’s take-up of front-line services.

I have for many years been involved closely with the development of policies designed to improve men’s health and advised different organisations, including the Department of Health, on how to improve service delivery to men. I worked with the Premier League to help develop the Premier League Health programme which reached over 4,000 men via 16 clubs.


Advocacy and lobbying

Helping organisations to influence decision-makers, locally and nationally, on issues relevant to men’s health.

I played a leading role in Men’s Health Forum’s campaigns to change the approach of the National Chlamydia Screening Programme to young men and to ensure that government and the NHS took better account of men when implementing gender equality legislation. I have spoken regularly at meetings of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Men’s Health and given evidence to the Health Select Committee.


Research and analysis

Deepening insight into the health needs of men and boys.

I have managed research projects on men’s mental health, improving men’s uptake of bowel cancer screening, and on understanding men’s health information needs. In recent years, I have written analyses of men’s use of primary care services and the need for a gender-specific approach to the promotion of physical activity.


Social marketing

Increasing the impact of communications on the health awareness and behaviours of men and boys.

I have experience in the development of a wide range of resources and campaigns, including the first ‘Work Fit’ programme for BT. I had overall responsibility for the delivery of Men’s Health Week every year from 2002-12 (MHW is now one of the highest-profile annual public health campaigns in the UK) and was the launch editor of, the UK’s first independent and comprehensive health information site aimed specifically at men.


Equality and diversity

Improving organisations’ work to address equality and diversity issues, including meeting legal responsibilities (Equality Act 2010) and the requirements of the NHS’s Equality Delivery System.

I led Men’s Health Forum’s long-term campaign to influence the work of the Department of Health, NHS and other public sector bodies to address men’s health issues and to focus on those groups of men with the worst health.
