About this book

Introduction

This book brings together a detailed examination of gender differences in the health needs of the UK population. Commonly held assumptions and key debates are explored such as: Are older women more prone to illness than older men? Is being single bad for your health? Are women still the madder sex? The text provides the most up-to-date empirical information regarding gendered health care consumption in the UK and the background knowledge necessary to assess health care needs.
