NICE acknowledgement of occipital nerve stimulator implant system

Great news!!!
Finally NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) have finally acknowledged that the stimulator implant system actually works to help people suffering from ON.
The system has been acknowledged by them for spinal nerve pain for years! Not sure why its taken them so long, to be honest! 

The guidance NICE give, as well as the data they collected during their research, makes an interesting read.
Here's the link if you're interested;

  1. Although it appears that you need to state that ON is a form of chronic migraine for them to contemplate it being anything relevant!
