If you do not attend a second time, we may discharge you from our service.

Before your appointment

For face-to-face appointments, please arrive no more than 30 minutes early.

We'll send you a link with an online questionnaire. Please complete this before your appointment.

Please bring:

  • a list of medications you take or have tried in the past for your headache
  • a headache diary, if you keep one to record how often you’re having headaches

For people receiving botox and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) antibody injections, please email your headache diary to us every 3 months at [email protected].

We need to receive your diaries at least 1 week before your appointment.

During your appointment

At your first appointment, you'll see a specialist doctor.
