Therapies

The Walton Centre Therapy Service provides specialist care for patients recovering from complex neurological injuries and illnesses, complex trauma and pain related conditions. The service provides support for patients living with both newly diagnosed and longer term conditions.

Working alongside dedicated medical and nursing staff, we provide a range of specialist therapies to help patients in their recovery and rehabilitation. These therapies include in patient Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Nutrition & Dietetics.

The teams cover all wards and critical care and will accept referrals for any patients who require assessment and treatment to optimise their physical function and mobility, their speech function and their nutrition.
