Do you get chronic migraine?

Ensure your voice is heard, whether you live in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK

Do you get chronic migraine? Do you live in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK?

Chronic migraine is defined as more than fifteen headache days per month over a three month period of which more than eight are migrainous, in the absence of medication overuse.

Scottish flagThe Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) will shortly be assessing the use of botulinum toxin type A (Botox) in Scotland for chronic migraine in adults. This is the third time the treatment has been considered by the SMC. Botox is not currently available for chronic migraine on the NHS in Scotland despite being approved and available on the NHS in England and Wales.

It is very important that in making their decision the SMC capture the impact of chronic migraine and the potential benefit this medicine may have to both patients and their families/carers. The Migraine Trust has registered as a patient interest group to ensure your voice is heard in the process. Please have your say via our survey. We will summarise and share your views directly with the SMC. Your responses will remain anonymous.

We are interested to have input from people with chronic migraine in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK

The survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to fill in.  It will remain open until Wednesday 23rd November 2016.
