A new consultation with an MRI performed on the day and a review that day with the MRI result is £300.
(IMPORTANT – This price is only for the consultation with Mr Nolan.  The MRI will attract an additional charge payable separately to the Ulster Clinic of £395 for one body area or £620 for the whole spine).

A new consultation where the patient brings their own MRI scan to the consultation on a disc necessitating that I review the MRI disc is £250.

A new consultation with no imaging performed or reviewed is £195.

A review consultation is £160.

A review consultation where a repeat or up-to-date MRI scan is performed is £250.

Please be aware that these prices are only for the consultations and payment must be made directly to Paul Nolan MLS LTD.

Charges may vary slightly if you are using insurance as different insurers allow different payments for consultations.

Some insurance policies may have an excess and may not cover the full cost of the consultation.  In this situation you will receive an invoice from our office requesting payment for the excess.

The day following your consultation you will receive a text message confirming the fee and explaining how to pay. Our preferred method of payment is by bank transfer. Details of our bank account are included below.
