A. Access to precision diagnostics and minimally invasive treatments varies across the NHS. Many patients find that engaging with both the NHS and the private sector provides an optimal blend of care.
Within the NHS, access to MRI scans, precision biopsies and genetic tests is unpredictable and in addition, modern treatments such as Focal Therapy that can avoid the bad outcomes of sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence are rarely available.
Patients with private insurance have access to these precision diagnostics and modern treatments. However you do not need insurance to access the prostate experts for initial consultations, further diagnostics or treatment.
The Prostate Experts operate in both the NHS and the private sector and are well experienced in maximising the benefits of both sectors for their patients’ care. For example, second opinions provided by the private sector can lead to successful care pathways in the NHS.
