Have you had spinal surgery at The Walton Centre recently? We need your views!
As part of the ongoing development of the model of care across Cheshire and Merseyside we are asking patients and families for their views. We would like to know your thoughts on spinal surgery being provided in a single location, how you felt at having to travel to the Walton Centre for your surgery, what worked well and if there were any improvements that could be made.
NHS Halton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Warrington CCG have been working together with the Cheshire and Merseyside Neurological Network to create an ambition and vision for spinal services provision across the area.
The Walton Centre has been identified as the only site which can provide this ambition and the full range of spinal surgery for our patients as it:
- Is co-located with the Aintree Hospital site, which is the regional major trauma site and additionally is the orthopaedic site for Liverpool
- Provides a concentration of both specialist neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons
- Enables the implementation of a single pathway for emergency spinal surgery, with access to appropriate diagnostics
In addition to this we are exploring the possibility for locally delivered outpatient services.
Before you give your views we encourage you to read more information on the developments.
