Do I need a GP referral to get an MRI Scan?

One of the benefits of booking through our service is that you will have a remote consultation online with our medical team, who will carry out the referral assessment and arrange your scan with a clinic directly.

How do I get my scan results?

A member of our medical team will give you a call to discuss your scan results and what you need to do next.

In some cases, you may be directed to your GP, if so we’ll provide you with everything you need for the follow-up consultation. Take a look at our booking guide for further information on how it works.

  • The MRI scan at your scanning centre chosen during booking.
  • A written report on your scan by a consultant radiologist.
  • Your scanning images sent electronically to you.

How long does an MRI Scan take?

An MRI scan on a single body part typically takes between 10–30 minutes, and may take longer for any additional or more complex scans.

Your radiographer will let you know the estimated duration of the procedure beforehand. Visit our page for further information on how magnetic resonance imaging works.

What happens if I want to cancel my scan?

If you wish to cancel your scan, there will be a £50 fee for the administration work already included in your referral. Failure to give 48 hours notice of your appointment time will result in no refund of fees.
