Men’s Health

The health of men has received greater attention in recent years, partly because they have a higher risk of certain health problems and injury, but also because of the way in which men use, or do not use, health services.

At Harold’s Cross Medical Centre we encourage our male patients to have regular checkups to stay on top of their health and wellbeing. We provide a full range of general medical services to men of all ages.

Routine & Acute GP Consultations

GP consultations are needed to diagnose complaints, prescribe a new medicine, monitor an ongoing prescription or order a blood test.

It may be helpful to give some brief details when booking your appointment so our reception staff can arrange the most appropriate appointment for you.​

It’s important to be aware of changes to your health, and to see your GP immediately if you notice something that’s not right.​

Men’s Sexual Health

We offer comprehensive sexual health screening service including full STI testing and treatment where required.

Patients without symptoms may visit the practice nurse for a sexual health screening visit.

For patients with symptoms, the service consists of an appointment with the doctor for full review of sexual health, advice and clinical examination, followed by blood tests and other samples as appropriate, taken usually by the practice nurse. Results are discussed at a follow up visit within 2 weeks.

Where appropriate, treatment such as cryotherapy for warts may be initiated as part of the service. Referral to specialist services will be advised and arranged if needed. The service is completely confidential and can be arranged by contacting reception, at short notice when necessary.

Joint Injection

Joint injections maybe used to treat swollen or painful joints.  A combination of local anaesthetic and a corticosteroid are injected directly into the affected join.  This is also called an intra-articular injection. The joints most often injected are the shoulder and knee.

To book appointment please phone reception and request an appointment with Dr Jim Holden or Dr Ciara Joy, who will make an assessment, investigate as appropriate and proceed to joint injection if this is deemed to be valuable.

The Benefits:

The benefits are normally experienced within a few days, if successful, and can last for months.  The medicine should help decrease inflammation, swelling and pain.  Generally, patients will respond after one injection, however it may be necessary to administer a further injection.  Side-effects are few but can occur and this will be discussed during your consultation.
