We offer a specialist second opinion service, both face to face and remotely for patients from all over the world, covering everything from complex circumstances; deciding on treatment options; and second opinions. 

Need to know

  • Why get a second opinion icon plus

    There are a number of reason you could be considering a second opinion including:

    • You are not confident that the correct diagnosis has been made
    • There are still have unanswered questions after speaking to your doctor and you don't fully understand the information you've been given
    • You're unsure and unhappy with the treatment recommended to you and have been told you can't have a particular type of treatment
    • You've been told that there is nothing more that more can be done
    • Your condition has returned after treatment
    • You're interested in clinical trials related to your condition
  • When to get a second opinion icon plus

    It's best to get a second opinion soon after a condition or problem is diagnosed but, even if you've already started treatment, it's not too late to get another view. Even after treatment (with the exception of surgery) you can still make an appointment to see one of our expert consultants to get their opinion on the best way forward from here.
  • If there's an issue with insurance cover icon plus

    If you're an employer or advisor where there's an issue with insurance cover, a second opinion can help resolve differences. If there is disagreement between the consultant leading a patient's treatment and the insurance company paying for the treatment, a different consultant can provide a second opinion to prevent stressful delays. To find out more, just get in touch.
  • If there's an issue with an employee's health and well-being icon plus

    We're regularly asked by employers to give a second opinion, including where there may be an issue with an employers' liability claim or ill health/early retirement issues. A different consultant can provide a second opinion to help resolve issues and stop delays to treatment.
  • If you need a referral for a second opinion icon plus

    You can ask your GP or doctor for a referral, or you can call us direct and we can help you work out who to see. You may feel uncomfortable asking for one, but you shouldn't worry about causing offence as it's very common both within private healthcare and the NHS to ask for a second opinion.
