Thank you for writing to me about support for people living with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND).
Raising awareness of conditions like FND is crucial to supporting earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment and care for those affected.
I would like to thank patient groups like FND Hope UK for the significant contribution they make towards increasing the information on OA/TOF available for healthcare professionals.
FND Hope UK’s research provides a valuable insight into the variation in the treatment, care and support received by people living with FND in England.
I understand that NICE has produced guidance to support clinicians in diagnosing FND. NICE is also in the process of developing a guideline for rehabilitation for chronic neurological disorders, which is due to be published in December 2023.
Thank you once again for contacting me.
