Call for more training for gPs

Migraine Action is calling for more training for GPs after a new report revealed that only four hours are committed to headache disorders in formal undergraduate training.

Whilst most migraineurs could be managed successfully in a primary care setting, many do not receive adequate care due to a lack of understanding about the condition. This can lead to numerous costly repeat consultations, unnecessary referrals into secondary care and inappropriate treatments.
