COVID-19 restrictions to remain in place at The Walton Centre

Restrictions remain in place across the NHS in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety measures in place over the 18 months therefore remain in place at The Walton Centre - and in our other clinic settings within the community – until further notice.

This means that patients will still be asked to:

  • have a temperature check
  • wear face coverings
  • maintain social distancing
  • undertake asymptomatic testing when required.

Due to the increased transmission risk posed by the Omicron variant, visiting has been suspended within The Walton Centre except for exceptional circumstances.

  • A maximum of two visitors for patients at the end of their life.
  • One parent or appropriate adult visiting a child, this may include multiple parents although only one may be present at any time.
  • One carer that is supporting someone with a mental health issue such as dementia, a learning disability or autism or other similar complex conditions where not being present would cause the patient to be distressed.
  • In exceptional cases consideration will be given to individual requests following a comprehensive risk assessment.

Please keep visiting our website for further information. This page and the visiting guidance page will also be updated if and when there are any changes to announce, in line with national NHS guidance.

Please be kind and respect our staff who greet you and work hard to look after you - we are here to keep you safe and we kindly request your support to help us do this. Thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation.
