The Walton Centre achieves Foundation Trust status
On 1 August the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery became known as the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust after Monitor, the Foundation Trust regulator, approved their application for this status.
As a Foundation Trust they will have greater freedom to grow and develop services in response to the needs of the communities they serve. They will also be more accountable to the communities they serve, through their Governors and members.
With this new status they feel they will truly be at the forefront of the modern NHS. The Neurological Alliance sends congratulations for this fantastic achievement.
