Dr Zoe Williams & Ashley James on why millions are avoiding treatment sooner

64% of us are currently experiencing an issue with our health, but new research from Tena suggests at least 1 in 10 (13%) will not address this with a doctor.

Almost half (45%) of us have hidden a medical issue/problem because we were too self-conscious to speak about it. And 84% of us believe that sometimes its easier to ignore medical problems/issues and hope they go away.

Aston spoke to TV’s Dr Zoe Williams and former Made in Chelsea star now DJ Ashley James.
