Closed petition Increase funding for multi-disciplinary treatment centres for FND Patients.
Funding is needed to set up and increase service provision for multi-disciplinary treatment centres. Treatment requires specialist care with a team of neurologists, physiotherapists etc. which must be integrated to create an effective plan. Current options are limited & insufficient.
Up to 1/3 of all neurological referrals are diagnosed with FND. Sufferers end up relinquishing their independence & become reliant on Carers, Aids and Adaptations. They are left unable to function & it’s vital we improve prospects. Medically Unexplained Symptoms (including FND) directly cost the NHS approximately £3.1 billion, with an additional £18 billion in indirect costs. With an NHS already under pressure, improving services and treatment for those with FND would greatly lift this burden.
