Second Opinions - Rights
Have I got a right to a second opinion?
Unfortunately you have no legal right to a second opinion. But your doctor should not dismiss it if you bring it up. They should think about your reasons for wanting another opinion and take them seriously. If they don’t agree that you need one, ask for reasons.
