The Primary Care Trust has commissioned a specialist clinic for patients suffering from chronic headaches and migraine. This is held at St Thomas Health Centre but is available for patients over the age of 18 registered with Practices within the Devon CCG.
Patients must initially be seen by their GP who will then refer them on to the Headache Clinic if appropriate. This should be done through the e-Referral Service – specify Neurology and choose Headache Clinic.
