This work 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?; and are women still the madder sex?. The text provides the up-to-date empirical information regarding gendered health care consumption in the UK and the background knowledge necessary to assess health care needs.
