This website is mainly aimed at supplementing the process of usual clinical care in primary headache conditions

  1. Clinical assessment and common primary headaches sections are relatively didactic
  2. The treatment tables are taken from the British Association for the Study of Headache guidelines recommended therapies
  3. The information sheets provide standardised information on treatments- including issues of analgesic overuse, suggested start and stop criteria, dosing, pregnancy/breast feeding etc, and you may find it helpful to provide these to your patients

If you would like to read the BASH guidelines in their entirety click on BASH guideline 2019 (top right). This contains information about additional treatment options.

For patients who wish to find out more about research, we have included a section to assist with signposting
