We have 15 headache clinics each week providing assessment, investigation and treatment.
Our fast-track cluster headache clinic is the only one of its kind in the country.
We work with our pain management and neuromodulation centre. This is an international centre of excellence.
Research and clinical trials
Our research work aims to:
- improve understanding of headaches
- investigate new treatments
- develop current treatments
- improve the quality of life for headache patients
We take part in local, national and international headache studies. We have close links with the headache research team at King's College London.
We may ask if you want to take part in our research. It won't affect your care in any way if you do not want to.
