The most common method is through the Individual Funding Request (IFR) process. This requires your GP to submit an Individual Funding Request to the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This group will then review the request and make a decision as to whether or not funding will be granted.
Alternatively, if you are under the care of a consultant at a hospital, they are able to apply directly to the NHS Trust that is responsible for that hospital for funding – if you feel that you are unable to tolerate a traditional supine MRI, this is something you should discuss with your consultant.
Finally, we do hold contracts or have prior arrangements with a variety of NHS bodies throughout the country, which enables easier access for their patients.
Many thanks for all your kind care and attention during my MRI scans with you yesterday afternoon. Everyone is so helpful and calm! It made for a very smooth and efficient time.Thanks also for fitting me in at such short notice!
To all the staff at the London Upright MRI Centre: Thank you so much for your professionalism, care, and kindness.I could not have completed the Brain MRI without your preparation beforehand and care on the day.
The radiographer was absolutely lovely, so kind, reassuring and understanding. I had a bad experience elsewhere but this was stress free, easy and no problem. Reception staff were so welcoming. Thank you!
I was most impressed with all the treatment I had. I would just like to thank you all -the lady who took MRI was very nice. I had an excellent experience.
I am claustrophobic, and this is the first time I’ve been in a upright scanner. It was brilliant compared to ordinary MRIs
