You only get this on NHS (after a very lengthy wait) if you have a medical condition that determines it! If you want a general health 'MOT' then this is an ideal route.

Worried well city! What about the detection of 'incidentalomas', which is far more likely than finding something of true concern...

They should have one of the at every fair ground / amusement park with the operator shouting the obligatory 'Raise your hands in the air if you want slide through faster' whilst listening to some cheesy hardcore rave tooons

I think you miss the point of this, the NHS will only give you an MRI scan if you go to them with symptoms of a problem. Some people like to ensure they aren't missing anything by having one anyway, i.e. this which you have to pay for as it's your own choice!

Perfect gift for the hypochondriac!

Gratis if you go through security at certain airports.

while you are there, get them to pump some radioactive substance into your blood stream and then check that every artery and vein is working OK

I had an MRI scan followed by a CT scan followed by a lumber puncture followed by a 24hr EPG. I pay my taxes and expect the health service to take care of me when I'm down

Yes!

Now that you have sorted out the upper part of your body, what about the rear?

They have camera's that they use to probe........

Of course they will.
But that's nothing to do with people choosing to use private medicine.

I'd rephrase that to "Some are paying taxes for it", others are just living off David Cameron and getting it for free

Oh you mean all the Tax dodgers in the Conservative Party? We all vote them in, so in a way its our fault too.

Will the consultation even be with a qualified doctor, or someone in a white jacket?! What will they do exactly if they find any "problems" for you to know about? I am guessing they'll sort them out for you for another fee, and since you've already spent £700 worried you'll have something wrong, you'll spend another few grand for a minor op you don't need anyway.

Yes, the scrounging unemployed is a myth designed to divert attention away from the real fact - which is that the Conservatives only help serve the rich. Think about it, there are more people who are "employed" than there are "rich". If they made their game plan obvious, they won't get voted in next time. They just want the poor (minimum wage) to look down on the unemployed poor, and blame them for everything. We peasants fight amongst ourselves while those nice rich people who "stop the unemployed stealing our money" keep taking taxes and giving themselves 11% pay rises. If we're stupid enough and fall for it we vote them in again.

They talk about making work pay but they'd rather take away, than give more by increasing minimum wage by a significant amount and improving employee's rights.

It's the same suckers that take their car in for a free 'Winter check' and drive out with a new set of tyres and £££ worth of work done to their already working car....

If you do this must ensure they provide a DVD with all the images stored and indexed.

but is it a good deal ? how much do others charge for an MRI?

The NHS won't do a full body MRI scan unless you've smashed yourself up and are critically ill. I am going through the system and have been trying to get an MRI scan on my hips for nearly 2 years! A private scan on one body part is around £800, so I've voted hot.

I actually considered one of these when I had herniated discs as the nhs waiting time was 16 weeks, which when you have 4 discs out is a very long time indeed, when you're in that much pain you'd happily pay this to speed up the process. This seems to be the going price.

Not a pleasant experience in MRI scanner IMO , wouldn't have one personally unless necessary
