Our impact on men's health

We evaluate our work to ensure we’re impacting on men’s health. We want our work to have a positive impact on those affected by prostate cancer. Measuring our impact allows us to see what we do well, what we can do better and what to work on in the future to help more men affected by prostate disease.

With our evaluations, we aim to:

  • Explain the problem we are trying to fix
  • Ask the right questions (to get the right answers)
  • Be part of creating the solution to the problem
  • Share all newfound knowledge

Summaries and in-depth reports of our evaluations are listed below.

  • Fatigue Management

    The Health and Social Care Professionals programme, which is funded by the Movember Foundation and Royal Mail, is one of Prostate Cancer UK’s most significant investments to date in improving services. We aim to fund professional roles in the NHS and other partners, to deliver better care for men in their local areas and bring about long term change in the way that services are run. The programme started in 2012 and is likely to be complete in 2016.
