Did you know...
Migraines currently affect 1 in 5 people in the UK. It affects both adults and children as well as both sexes. More people suffer with migraine than epilepsy, diabetes and asthma combined. Despite its widespread nature in the UK, there is a shortage of medical professionals, particularly neurologists, who specialise in it. Only we offer a highly specialised and reputable service to sufferers of migraine and cluster headache in the UK.
In the UK there are an estimated 190,000 attacks every day. 50% of those that suffer will go undiagnosed or undertreated. The World Health Organisation ranks migraine as being one of the top 20 most disabling illnesses for adults.
