I spent many hours on the wards at the Walton as my Father, Mr Donald Shaw, was a Consultant there from 1978 until his retirement. It is a great pleasure to be able to support the fundraising for this world class unit. The Home from Home provision is so important in supporting the relatives, as well as the patients, through one of the most difficult times of their lives.

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; Epilepsy, 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.
