Often, a second opinion can give you more information, or a greater understanding about your diagnosis and well as providing peace of mind for yourself or a family member. When considering advanced treatment options a second opinion allows you to ask any additional questions or explore your diagnosis with a second professional. With over 500 expert Consultants, The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth offers swift and specialist diagnosis and treatment when you need it.
Out expert Consultants and Physicians are on hand to offer expert advice at any time from diagnosis to treatment. You may have been diagnosed and would like to seek a second opinion to explore your options or you may have started treatment and would like to ask additional questions or receive recommendations. Even after treatment, our team are available to provide you with advice on after care, on going treatment or therapies you may wish to explore.
Asking for a second opinion is a common way to provide you and your loved ones with peace of mind before under going treatment. Both private and NHS patients often seek a second opinion to ask additional questions or confirm the options they have already been given. Our Consultants provide clear and concise diagnosis and treatment options for patients with consulting time to ensure peace of mind and full understanding.
If there is an issue with insurance cover or questions from your employer, a second opinion can assist by providing you with more information to settle any disagreements regarding payment for a treatment or disputes around a Consultant leading treatment. Please get in touch to find out more.
If you would like a second opinion at any time of diagnosis or treatment your GP can refer you to one of our specialists or you can get in touch with us directly.
