Is Gammacore available on the NHS (England)

Hi,

Having a bit of a problem with my new neurologist who says Gammacore is not available on the NHS. Is he correct?

I am confirmed to have Clusters Headaches.

Thank you for any advice and take care

Steve

Hi Steve,

If you check out the NHS website it will show you that the NHS (including England) has received funding to prescribe the gammacore. 

Unfortunately, I cannot comment on NHS England. In Wales, my neurologist referred me to her colleague (another neurologist) who is responsible for prescribing the gammacore. 

I hope you find the information you need & take a few steps closer to gaining a gammacore. Good luck! 

Mali
