Clinical Guidelines



Headaches are one of the most common neurological problems presented in the NHS; more than 10 million people in the UK experience regular or frequent headaches and they account for around one in 25 of all consultations in general practice. They are painful and debilitating and are a cause of absence from work or school. The NICE guideline advises on the diagnosis and management of the most common headache types seen by healthcare professionals.
