Wait times for private mri scan

I’ve been referred for a brain mri scan for the headaches I’m getting. I’m claiming on my
Medical insurance and just wanted to hear the typical timescales involved when it’s not nhs. I’ve got initial consultation with neurologist next week, are they likely to do the mri that day? How long after the mri is done does it take to get the results? I’m hoping it’s not weeks as I’m a very anxious type and will be driving myself mad with worry. Thanks

A couple of days for the scan and a few days for the result - less than the week. That was when we paid cash rather than claiming on insurance though.

Thanks for the info
