My dad was diagnosed with a Meningioma tumour in 2010 and had surgery at the Walton Centre followed by 5 months in ICU and then another month in recovery. We spent a lot of time in the waiting room of ICU and HDU during some of the worst times of our lives. We were so fortunate to be an easy drive away from the centre, with other families having to travel much farther distances for the expertise at the Walton Centre for their loved ones.

The Walton Centre in Liverpool offers a world class neuroscience service which includes many pioneering techniques, cutting edge treatments; and clinicians who are international leaders in their field. Over 100,000 patients are treated at the hospital each year with conditions ranging from head and spinal trauma injuries; brain and spine tumours; Epilipsy, MS, Motor Neurone Disease and Parkinson.

The Charity funds a variety of projects in the hospital including research, innovation, new technology and patient & family facilities.
