Two GPs forced to give up their jobs because of chronic migraines have said the Welsh Government must do more to help sufferers. Dr Anna Maclean and Dr Jackie Morgan quit work because their symptoms made it unsafe to continue. They told ITV Wales that long waiting lists and a lack of support is making the situation worse for migraine sufferers.
Both women are keeping diaries of their symptoms to help other GPs understand the signs of chronic migraine. Anna described being "almost not there" for hours at a time, she says Wales is seriously lacking in resources.
Anna is now one of 800 people on a new drug trial to try and combat the symptoms of chronic migraines.
The women also pointed to waiting lists as an issue that needed to be dealt with in Wales. Jackie told ITV Wales that it could be "months" before seeing a specialist.
In response to the calls, a Welsh Government spokesperson said they "recognise the debilitating effect chronic migraine has on people's lives".
"We expect people who have neurological conditions including chronic migraine to have access to high quality care services".
