Latest News

We have been notified by the Met Office of a Level 2 heat-health alert for the period 9 am Wednesday 24 June to 9 pm Friday 26 June 2020, see attached 

As you are aware this may cause an increase in demand for services as a consequence.

We are releasing advice to the public via our local social media sites and would ask that you also use the new resources below, outlining the risks of COVID-19 and hot weather.

These are available on the Heatwave Plan for England collection page and are available to download below. 

The two updated Parent Tips:

  •    One providing some basic information on the childhood immunisation programme, explaining how vaccines work, how they are regulated and why it is important to ensure your baby receives all the recommended immunizations.
  •    The second provides answers to “Frequently Asked Questions” and has been written by leading national experts. It covers getting your baby immunised and what to expect, including information on things such as soothing your baby during and after vaccinations, and what to do if they are poorly on the day of their appointment.

Just to reassure you that despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is still recommended that your child receives their vaccines as this protects them against other serious diseases that can still cause them harm.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SUSPECTED STROKE PATIENTS IN WALSALL

  

Removal of Stroke Services at Walsall Manor

 

GPs and practice staff are being reminded that there are NO Hyper Acute or Acute Stroke Services at Walsall Manor Hospital.

 

All suspected stroke and stroke mimic cases should be taken to New Cross Hospital, in Wolverhampton by blue light ambulance using the 999 system.

 

Several communication messages about this service change has been sent to practices over the past six months. As you will recall on April 11, 2018 all acute stroke services moved to New Cross, which now deals with all cases from the Walsall area.

 

We have sent out this reminder as a number of TIAs are still being sent to Walsall Manor Hospital – which is not a front line blue light service. These patients should have been sent to New Cross Hospital and not Walsall Manor.
