Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) with Dr Chris Symeon and Dawn Golder FND Hope UK

By Hidden Disabilities Sunflower The Sunflower Conversations Share


“Functional neurological disorder is a really common neurological condition. It happens because of a problem with brain signalling. So, it's involving brain networks rather than specific anatomical damage and it can affect any part of the nervous system.”

Dr Chris Symeon, is a consultant neuropsychiatrist at St George’s University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the clinical lead for the FND rehabilitation programme. Dawn Golder, is a National Advocate of FND Hope UK and has lived experience with FND. 

In this conversation we get answers to the questions raised by Sunflower wearers about FND. Advice about diagnosis and access to treatment pathways.


If you are experiencing any issues discussed in this podcast please contact your GP or healthcare practitioner.
