How HCA UK can help with a second opinion

If you'd like to discuss your cancer diagnosis, explore your options or simply confirm that what you've been recommended is the best course of treatment, we're happy to help.


Asking for another opinion is very common within both the NHS and private healthcare so you shouldn't worry about causing offence. It can also help you decide between different treatment options and help you make an informed decision about what's best for you.


A second opinion at HCA UK can also include access to our clinical trials expertise at the Sarah Cannon Research Institute. This means that, if you have cancer, you can explore whether clinical trials could help you with your treatment.
