It is recognised however that getting a second opinion can be a confusing and lengthy process, increasing anxiety particularly if serious illness is involved. SOS’s main aim is to make this process simple with rapid and straightforward access to appropriate specialist expertise and reporting of the specialist’s opinion back to patients quickly.
An individual’s health concern may be medical, surgical or radiological in nature, simple or complex. SOS will do its best to find the right specialist to help answer the question being asked.
