Note: Professor Stone has kindly agreed to feature as a guest speaker in this webinar in his free time. He has been invited to speak on this subject as an expert in his field and is not being compensated for appearing in Stewarts Soundbites, as none of our speakers are. He receives more medicolegal instructions than he can accept so wanted to let viewers know he was taking part to raise awareness of FND, not to gain work.
