I need a referral for a brain MRI SCAN as I’ve booked for

Customer Question

Hi. I need a referral for a brain MRI SCAN as I’ve booked for one this weekend and are asking for a referral. My mom had a mini stroke yesterday
JA: Have you used any medication for mini stroke?
Customer: Just aspirin she’s taking since yesterday
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about mini stroke?
Customer: Yesterday at the hospital
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: She has Parkinson’s disease and her doctor in Greece recommended an MRI scan so he knows what has caused the mini stroke.

Hi. I only need the referral. If you are not able to provide one, I would not like to be charged

You can either get one form the GP or may be a walk in  center.

Online options include telemedicine sites like and  They do referrals but charge some amount too..
