Increase funding for multi-disciplinary treatment centres for FND Patients. From Australian Government!
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.
More details
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 medicare approximately billions, with an additional $30 billion in indirect costs. With Medicare already under pressure, improving services and treatment for those with FND would greatly lift this burden

I am a mum of two young children a wife and a small business owner , healthy, fit and then BANG! My life changed overnight to having seizures during the night and daily, up to 7 or more I’m unable to walk, stuttering, tremors, speech disorder and still currently in hospital waiting to see one of the two specialists in Australia! Every hospital I have been in have no knowledge of this disorder and I’d never heard of this disorder too until 3.5 weeks ago, yet it’s more common than Parkinson’s disease, and other chronic diseases! People are suffering this needs to be addressed! It’s not only affecting me it’s my family friends everyone around me, people need support and help and medical professionals need training to help these people!
