Great idea, thank you! I have to travel to London next week from north Wales, to finally meet a specialist (Dr Mark Edwards) after many years of having functional gait disorder with no meaningful treatment from the NHS. But I am worried about accessing treatment after my appointment. It should be available across the UK. Fingers crossed we get enough signatures to make a difference!

Done - thank you for getting this done! I've lost my neuro Phiso as they will only give in patient Phiso now at my hospital that I've been going too for a couple of years now. Even the specialist says I need to see a neuro Phiso for my fnd but suggested that as the NHS cannot supply it now, I pay £70 a hour to my neuro Phiso who has left the NHS!!! No way I can do that so continue to suffer long term.

I've written to my local MP about the petition and above so hopefully may do something, watch this space xx
