Male model medical wards in England are to open for business on the same day as male hormone therapy.
The NHS announced that the new male model medical ward will be opened in Newcastle and will be the first in the UK to be opened by a UK-based company.
The move comes after the first of three male model medicine wards opened in Scotland, in Glasgow.
The company, Male Model Healthcare, is run by a group of female model doctors, including actress Liza Minnelli and former US football player John Carlos.
Female model doctors and surgeons are known for working with celebrities, and the company has previously announced plans to open a new male hormone clinic in New York.
“The female model healthcare community has the unique opportunity to be the bridge to a new era in male hormone treatment,” Dr Claire Maclennan, a medical consultant with the British Association of Female Model Doctors (BAMG) told the BBC.
“Male model medicine has a rich history of providing male models with the resources and professional support they need to be successful.”
This will be a first in this country.
“A male model model medicine centre will also open in Wales in the next few months.
The UK-headquartered company, which has registered its trademark on the term “male model”, has launched a website which describes itself as “a platform for men to share their experience and discuss issues around male model healthcare.””
It’s an incredibly diverse community of doctors, nurses, patients and volunteers and the new site will provide the platform to provide our members with a safe and respectful environment for their discussion,” it said.
Male model doctors are a small but influential community.
In the UK, about 4,000 male model doctors have been registered, with around 1,200 performing operations on male models.
The website also says that there are over 600 male model nurses who work in the NHS, and that there is a growing need for male model health care professionals.
The health service currently employs more than 2,000 female model nurses.
