Patient Information

Second Opinions

Across our six hospitals, 2,800 consultants and 50 specialties, we can always find a consultant who can provide a second opinion for one of your employees or clients. We are regularly asked to provide second opinions for a variety of reasons, including:

  • for a patient who would like a second opinion before major surgery, either to explore other options, or simply to confirm the course of action that their consultant has recommended. A second opinion often provides reassurance and peace of mind for patients before they start treatment, and helps them to decide between different options
  • for an employer or advisor where there is an issue with insurance coverage. A second opinion can help to resolve differences of opinion between the consultant leading a patient's treatment and the insurance company that is funding the treatment, avoiding delays which can be stressful for the patient concerned
  • for an employer in connection with employers' liability claims, or ill health/early retirement issues

If you would like us to arrange a second opinion, simply call us on +44 (0) 20 7079 4399, Monday to Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday 9am-5pm.

We can also provide more general support about healthcare service delivery - helping you to understand about differences in clinical quality or identifying other potential suppliers of services, for example primary care.
