 Specialist Headache Nurse Service


"I took advantage of the Specialist Headache Nurse Service a few weeks ago. I was on a real low after getting migraines, day after day. I spoke with Rebecca and she spent almost an hour on the phone with me. She was patient, knowledgeable and very helpful - far more useful than 10 minutes maximum one might expect to get from your GP and I suspect - far more knowledgeable too. So thanks Migraine Action for providing this service."

Having supported migraineurs for over 50 years, we know that many migraineurs find it extremely difficult to access help from a migraine specialist and can be left to battle with their migraine alone.

To address this and as part of our commitment to empowering migraineurs to take control of their migraine, we have recently launched a new 'Specialist Headache Nurse Service'.

Rebecca Salt, a registered nurse with a diploma in nursing and 12 years experience as a research sister and specialist headache nurse, is now available to give (non-prescribing) telephone advice and information to migraineurs who are struggling to manage their condition or who need specialist advice on medications and treatment.

The service aims to empower you with the knowledge and understanding to help you manage your condition more effectively and work with your existing healthcare team to minimise the impact of migraine on your life.

To access the service (and get the most benefit) you must:

  • Have a migraine diagnosis from your GP / are struggling to get an accurate diagnosis
  • Want to understand more about your diagnosis
  • Take medication for your migraine
  • Struggle to manage your migraine and symptoms

There is a charge of £15.00 for members to access the Specialist Headache Nurse Service. (Non-members can also access the service at a cost of £30.00, or for just a further £10.00 they can also join as a member. This £40.00 fee includes Annual Migraine Action membership of £25, plus £15 inital charge for the Specialist Headache Nurse service. To find out more about the benefits of joining as a member please click here.)

Our Specialist Headache Nurse will do all she can to find the right solution for you and support you on your migraine journey. Within the cost of the call is included a free follow up call. Should you require further access to the Specialist Headache Nurse in the future, arrangements can be made for that to happen at a additional cost.

We would also love to hear your feedback on this new initiative as the service develops.
