We now have a fast-track cluster headache clinic. For more information please read the referral information below.
Referrals for the fast-track cluster headache clinic
This fortnightly clinic is for patients with a confirmed or probable diagnosis of cluster headache who are currently in bout (or expecting to be very soon).
If the patient is already under the care of a headache specialist elsewhere, they can only be referred to our fast-track clinic if they are unable to get an appointment to see their usual consultant in the next month.
We will see them for a one-off appointment to provide interim advice or treatment until they can see their usual headache specialist.
To refer to our fast-track cluster headache clinic:
Our nurse specialist will contact the patient and, if appropriate, the patient will be offered an appointment within two weeks.
