How our medical experts gave Nikki a second chance at life

Nikki was just 42 when she was told she had stage 4 ovarian cancer and that nothing could be done to treat it. Completely distraught, Nikki decided to explore whether she could get a second opinion elsewhere.

Following a conversation with her healthcare insurer, Nikki was referred to a specialist at HCA Healthcare UK and from here, she was told that there were treatments available to her to increase her chances of survival. After undergoing a number of treatments, Nikki is now one year cancer-free and is able to think about the future once more.

Getting a second opinion

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, whether or not you have started treatment, a second opinion can give you reassurance and peace of mind.

Our second opinion service is led by expert consultants. They will provide a comprehensive review of your current and past medical history, to identify the best treatment options for you. This review may identify new treatment options or simply confirm you are already receiving the best treatment. Either way it can help you make an informed decision about what is best for you.

We offer a second opinion service in London, Birmingham and Manchester, covering a wide range of specialities.
