Local MSP is Latest Big Name Signing for Men United

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, is backing Prostate Cancer UK’s ‘Men United v Prostate Cancer’ campaign, which uses sport terminology to explain the deadly disease.

Mr Stevenson said:

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is predicted to be the most common cancer overall by 2030.

“Despite this we know that the quality of care and support men with the condition receive varies throughout Scotland. To address this I reiterate the call on NHS Boards to implement Prostate Cancer UK’s excellent Quality Checklist, and I am delighted to sign for Men United v Prostate Cancer.

“Working together, I know we can win this.”

Scottish football legend Denis Law, chat show host Sir Michael Parkinson and comedy icon Bill Bailey have also joined Mr Stevenson in the campaign.

Drew Lindon, Head of Policy and Campaigns at Prostate Cancer UK, said:

"Prostate cancer survival rates are below the European average, research into the disease lags a decade behind that of other cancers, and quality of care and support varies depending on where you live.

“By signing up, Stewart Stevenson has a place and a voice in a growing movement that’s taking action for men’s health. We are extremely grateful for his ongoing support, and would encourage people throughout Scotland to join Men United to help boot prostate cancer into row Z.”
