The National Migraine Centre (NMC) is the UK’s only charity dedicated to providing diagnosis and treatment for the one in seven people and up to one in ten children who suffer migraine and other primary headaches Since 1980, NMC have enabled those affected to access world-class consultant neurologists and GP headache specialists, helping many thousands of people who are unable to access effective treatment through either the NHS or private clinics.
Due to gaps in NHS provision and the rationing of effective treatments, access to headache treatment is currently closely linked to ability to pay. As a result, uncontrolled migraine and other primary headache is associated with health inequalities and can greatly exacerbate social exclusion.
Funding from Postcode Innovation Trust, thanks to players of People's Postcode lottery, was awarded to enable them to scale up their operations and support for people who suffer migraine and other primary headaches, regardless of their ability to pay.
