BASH Headache Specialist Practitioner group

Who we are

The British Association for Study of Headache is proud to have a thriving community of specialist Headache Nurses and Allied Health Professionals including Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Physician Associates and Psychologists working across the NHS. These dedicated clinicians work alongside Neurologists and GPs managing headache disorders and carrying out a range of interventional treatments.

The BASH Headache Specialist Practitioner group supports Headache Nurses and Allied Health Professionals working with headache patients within the UK through access to education, mentoring and help with professional development.

BASH Mentoring Programme for Headache Specialist Practitioners

As a BASH member, we would like to invite you to join the BASH mentoring scheme. The mentoring scheme has been set up to support you in your career and to connect with others around the country doing similar roles. Mentorship has many benefits for both the mentor and mentee and in a developing area such as Headache, it is very important to share and learn from each other.

We aim to link clinicians with similar interests who will act as a guide, supporting your career aspirations whether they are clinical, research, leadership, or education. A list of Mentors will be available on the BASH website along with further information about mentee and mentor arrangements. We anticipate that each mentee and mentor will meet approximately four times a year for about an hour, but this is flexible and would be arranged by the individuals. If you would like to apply to the BASH mentorship scheme, please send the completed mentorship application form and CV to
