It’s not like there would be a lot of people opposed to this idea, right? Prince William has suggested that everyone and anyone who gets a check-up should be offered a free pint of beer. However, the Duke of Cambridge appeared to be only half joking when he put forward the idea to help tackle a problem with men who sometimes dismiss changes in their body until it is too late. Here’s what you need to know.
His comment came in the grounds of London’s Royal Marsden Hospital when he toured the Man Van, a mobile clinic providing free health checks to men, especially black men who have a higher risk of dying from prostate cancer than other ethnic groups. William asked what the symptoms of prostate cancer were, after admitting he did not know, and when told changes in toilet habits was one factor he said: “It’s tricky when it’s so subtle.”
Prince William Wants To Offer A Free Beer To Anyone That Gets A Health Check-Up
He told Fionnuala McCarthy, an advanced nurse practitioner who has been seeing patients in south London this week: “I have an idea that could go down very badly, but it might be quite good – you could offer a free pint. I think guys having a pint while you’re having you blood test that would be a great way of doing it.”
Dr Masood Moghul, a clinical research fellow who is collecting data from the men seen, said maybe they could look for funding for a coffee machine. But William replied: “You’re going to have to think a bit imaginatively to get guys in here. It’s a kind of thing they’ll do if there’s a fun thing that goes with it, not too serious.”
During his visit, Prince William, who serves as president of the Royal Marsden, one of Europe’s leading cancer hospitals, also watched a cutting-edge procedure to treat patients during his visit to the hospital.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the matter, although it would sure be nice if someone did offer a free pint for this initiative, right?
