Help us update our award-winning websites

Malehealth was commended in the British Medical Association's patient information awards this month.

Obviously we're about communicating with patients or potential ones rather than medics but I was still delighted to see the site recognised once again by the doctors. We’re currently overhauling both the Forum’s sites to bring them up to date with modern media technology so to win an award before this is implemented is a real tribute to the “by men for men” content of malehealth.

The current websites are built on technology that is seven years old - an eon in techie terms - and are currently kept on the road with much the same combination of luck and sweat as a vintage car. But as well as rebuilding the technology behind the scenes, we're updating the design and interface of the sites for, as the marketing men say, a brand new, improved user's experience - looking up health information has never been so easy or so much fun! What do you think of our new designs? Your feedback is warmly welcomed - just post a comment by clicking on the word 'comments' below.

I quite like both, particularly the the design. Malehealth was always good in my opinion, but menshealthforum's new design seems much more engaging than the previous one. The menus soley across the top allows for more space on the home page to focus on features, news and events. Also, it's useful that it tags malehealth on the right-hand side because practitioners, politicians, etc might be interested to know the issues of key importance to members of the public at any given time.
