Still Movember for some GPs at Nairn Healthcare Group

Article below from the practice:

So…’s November and you may once again be seeing a radical increase in facial hair. Welcome to Movember!

The Movember Foundation is a global organisation committed to changing men’s health for the better. Every November, males are encouraged to grow a moustache to spark conversation and to raise funds to help with prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lives and one man every hour sadly dies from this disease. We are also witnessing testicular cancer to be the most common cancer in men aged 25-49 along with 1 in 8 men experiencing mental health disorders. We need your help and support to
overcome this!

Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 800 programmes in 21 countries and is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues. Worldwide, Movember has managed to make a staggering £345 million.

Now, we need your help to raise funds for the Movember Foundation. You may have noticed a few of our very own GPs are supporting new moustaches. Our “Mo Bros”, Dr Baker, Dr Simmons, Dr Ball, Dr Holdcroft and Dr McDougall would greatly appreciate any donation that you can afford. You can support them by picking up a sponsor form from our very own reception desk in the Nairn branch or donating online at

We are thankful for any support you can offer. Let’s help beat these life-threatening health issues.

Why have you not got comment on your last post about the county result. Don't telll me you've been done by the censorship police. Remember a blog with no comment is a blog with no balls. We know which way your heading.

The Gurn sometimes does not have a comment stream on articles. It is a sort of an institution yes but it remains this observer's toy at the end of the day. Why not start your own blog if you think the Gurn doesn't allow free speech on all issues.

@ anon 12.00pm. That is a fair comment. Looks like the gurn has thrown his toy out of the pram.
