My Original Diagnosis Was Incorrect

After a number of diagnostic tests and consultations my original diagnosis proved to be incorrect. I feel assured and confident that I’m now receiving the right treatment.

Face to Face Second Opinions

How it works

We’ll identify a choice of specialist consultants, then help you to choose the right one for you. When you’re ready, your Case Manager will arrange your second opinion along with tests, travel or accommodation (if you need it). Getting hold of your scans, X-rays and medical records is part of the service. We work hard to gather your records as quickly as possible – and significantly faster than the 40-day standard NHS hospitals and clinics work towards. Once gathered, we’ll safely transfer them to your chosen specialist with a case history summary and anything else you’d like them to know.

Added 6-7 Months Onto My Husband’s Life

I have no doubt whatsoever that the cancer treatment plan proposed by the Sarcoma Panel that you put together added 6-7 months onto my husband Alan’s life. During these months he was able to see his 11-year old be part of a winning dance team. His 9-year old son play tackle football for the first time. His 6-year old son get on a school bus for the very first time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Harley Street Concierge charges £90* to arrange a Pathology Review, £490* to arrange a Medical Record Review and £490* to arrange a Face-to-Face Consultation. For a Cancer Support Specialist to come to a consultation with you, the cost is £270*.

*All medical and other third party costs are charged separately. These are payable directly to the appropriate clinic/provider and will be discussed with you in advance.

A Pathology Review could help ensure that test results have been interpreted correctly and you have an accurate diagnosis. They’re helpful in determining or confirming what type, grade and stage cancer you have. We’ll get a sample of your tumour tissue or cytology and submit it to an expert pathologist for review. A report will be sent to you and the doctor(s) treating you – summarising the review and the findings.

A Medical Record Review is an assessment of your medical notes by a specialist in your specific cancer type. You do not need to be there. A report will be sent to you and the doctor(s) treating you – summarising the review and the cancer treatment plan recommended.

A Face-to-Face Second Opinion is an in-person consultation with a specialist in your specific type of cancer. After your appointment, a report will be sent to you and the doctor(s) treating you – summarising the review and cancer treatment plan recommendations.

Our service includes the additional option of being accompanied to this consultation by a Cancer Support Specialist. A Cancer Support Specialist helps you prepare your questions in advance, meets you at the clinic, completes all the registration requirements on your behalf and takes notes in your consultation to make sure everything is captured.

Your dedicated Case Manager is your main point of contact. A Case Manager matches you with the most appropriate clinical team, arranges appointments and care with the world’s most respected doctors, liaises with third parties on your behalf, gets hold of medical records, X-rays and tumour tissue samples, helps you make decisions that are right for you and supports you with your unique emotional and practical needs.

Your dedicated Cancer Support Specialist is a qualified cancer expert. A Cancer Support Specialist can answer questions about your diagnosis and treatment, suggest ways to cope with physical problems (including loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, pain and lack of energy), accompany you to consultations and recommend additional sources of cancer support.

It’s essential for you to be certain that your diagnosis is correct. And that any suggested treatment is the most suitable for you and your specific cancer type.

That’s why you’re entitled to seek as many opinions as you want – as long as you’re prepared to pay for a second opinion privately. If you’re concerned, we’ll happily speak with your doctor on your behalf. And rest assured you can return to the NHS to continue your treatment at any time.

We have many years’ experience working with the doctors in London’s private sector and leading academic institutions across the UK – as well as the leading cancer centres in America. Doctors are handpicked for their outstanding research record, academic achievement, worldwide reputation and communication style. We also look for doctors who embrace new technology and are prepared to go the extra mile for you. We identify a choice of leading specialists then support you to make the right decision for you.

You’re bound to have questions and we’ll happily take care of you for two weeks following your consultation.
