About the service

Many of us have to undergo surgery at some stage in our lives and the experience is usually stressful and sometimes even a little intimidating.
The Surgery Consultation service, as part of the MyHealthPortal benefit, is designed to provide comprehensive support for patients about to undergo surgery or who are recovering from surgery and includes the provision of medical consultations and personal support before surgery and during the rehabilitation period.
NHS hospitals are often understaffed and the surgeons and consultants are very busy and may not have the time to listen to the patient and answer all questions to his or her satisfaction.
You may have questions about coping with the pain, recovery and rehabilitation.
Now with the Surgery Consultation service you can be sure that you will be empowered with fresh and professional support and advice about your medical condition.

The MyHealthPortal medical team are trained to support each and every subscriber with the following:
• Provision of general information on the surgery;
• Tips and information about preparing your body for the procedure;
• Review of the medical file;
• Additional medical consultations from top leading hospitals around the globe in order to avoid an unnecessary procedure (Click to see Second Opinion service)
• Review the possibility of alternative treatments;
• Medical support during the recovery at home;
• Application can be submitted in respect of any kind of surgery, and in the case of a rare medical condition, a multidisciplinary consultation is available;
The service is designed to empower each and every MyHealthPortal subscriber with fresh, professional and personal information to enable him or her to make an informed decision.
