"Walton Centre Day Hospital"

About: The Walton Centre

I was referred tothe Walton Centre by my GP for assesment and tests. Basically you were production lined from Day Hospital to test Department and back. Very little in the way of verbal communication from staff .After tests was told I would be called back for an outpatients appointment, However I was sent a letter telling me I had Syringomyelia (Syrinx Cavity T8-T11 . Left to look this up on the internet to learn if this progresses I could become paralysed. No outpatients app was arranged, Discharged according to Hospital. World class centre?, Certainly not World Class treatment. Consultant treated me like I was a Nuisance and dismissed my pain and symptoms.
