OUCH (UK) are pleased to be able to return to London to present a packed event specifically for Cluster Headache sufferers and supporters.

As usual, the event will be a mixture of talks by the UK's leading Cluster Headache specialists, information sessions and an opportunity to meet and talk with other Cluster Headache sufferers to share experiences and meet and make new friends.

Our medical speakers will take you on a journey through Cluster Headache and other primary headache disorders, telling you about the current treatments available as well as what studies and trials are on-going and what the future holds for Cluster Headache treatment and management.

Throughout the day there will be plenty of opportunities to chat to our speakers, trustees and officers, as well as other sufferers and supporters. Back by popular demand will be a targeted set of group discussions on various topics that affect sufferers; this is a chance to question the OUCH (UK) team and each other about treatments and employment support, as well as more general questions.

A light sandwich lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided. 

Please note that the conference will be a nut-free zone as some conference attendees have nut allergies.
