Dr Sarj Bahia and Dr Amro Maarouf at Edgbaston Private Medical Practice are raising awareness and showing their support for the global campaign ‘Movember’ by growing their moustaches.

The practice is also donating £20 to the important men’s health charity for every health screening booked during the month of November, raising funds for those who need it most. Their donations can be tracked via their JustGiving page, https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/epmp-practice.

The Movember Foundation is the only men’s health charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year-round. The charity addresses some of the biggest issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

The vision for the charity is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health, planning to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% before 2030.

Edgbaston Private Medical Practice are urging patients to book in for their health screenings, allowing for the early detection and effective treatment of potential health problems, whilst collectively raising money for such an important cause.

Dr Bahia, Principal GP at Edgbaston Private Medical Practice, comments: “Since opening at Colmore Row we are seeing more and more men concerned with their health, ranging from physical issues to mental health. We’re keen to support anything that can raise awareness of encouraging men to seek help in a confidential environment.”
