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.

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


The Neuroimmunology Department in The Neuroscience Laboratories performs a variety of specialist tests.  Neuroimmunology staff are available for consultation and advice - Monday to Friday until 5.30pm.  Please see contact information for telephone numbers. 

Neuroimmunology is the study of the interaction between the immune and nervous systems.  In its clinical aspects, Neuroimmunology focuses on diseases of the nervous system which are caused by pathogenic autoimmune processes.  

Additional Tests 

Once analysed, samples will be stored. If additional tests are required, please contact the laboratory to discuss whether this would be appropriate, given the variable stability of some analytes. Additional requests for tests must be given in writing. 

Neuroimmunology Results – We can report by hardcopy, secure email, fax or NPEx. 

Please contact us if you would like to set up NPEx for requesting and reporting. 


Contact Information 

Neuroimmunology may be contacted for help and advice Monday to Friday, 9am to 5.30pm (samples accepted between 9am and 5pm).
