Our friendly reception staff are available to answer your enquiries and make bookings.
MRI bookings need to be confirmed at least one week prior to the scheduled appointment date/time. Failing to do this will result in cancellation. Patients scheduled for MRI procedures must bring the MRI Safety Questionnaire along with them to the appointment.
Except for Pension and Health Care Card holders, out of pocket expenses may apply. Although the cost of the procedure may vary depending on what is required on the day of the service, our reception staff are more than happy to provide you with an estimate of the likely upfront costs.
