On arrival to The Walton Centre please report to the Outpatient Department Reception.
If you are unsure where to go, please ask at the Main Reception.
If you have arrived by ambulance, please inform the staff at Reception.
When you attend for your Outpatient appointment, please bring with you:
- Patient administration form, completed as fully as possible
- Your appointment card/letter
- Your regular prescription list (if you have one)
- Any tablets or medicines you are currently taking, including those which may be for any non-neurological condition you have, e.g. asthma, diabetes, heart disease, etc.
You only need to bring a urine sample if your appointment card/letter asks you to do so.
It is important that you bring with you your medication for the whole day of your appointment, particularly if you have to take your medications at a certain time, e.g. for Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and diabetes. Clinics do over-run, traffic can be congested on your way home and/or you may have a long journey back from The Walton Centre.
You will usually be seen by a consultant or specialist registrar. There may be trainees or medical students observing the clinic who will greatly benefit from observing your consultation. If you wish to be seen alone please mention this to the clinic nurse or your doctor.
