VISITING YOUR GP SURGERY


Face coverings iconPLEASE WEAR FACE COVERINGS.
COVID-19 PROTECTIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE IN THIS SURGERY.

In line with current Government guidance patients are required to
continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings.

Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so – unless exempt – is
key to preventing spread of infection.

CQC - Care Quality Commission

CQC Direct Monitoring

CQC suspended their routine inspection programme in March 2020 in response to Covid-19 and do not intend to resume it for the immediate future.  CQC have continued to use a mix of onsite and off-site monitoring to ensure the public have assurance as to the safety and quality of the care they receive. As we emerge from the pandemic CQC are further developing their monitoring approach. In accordance with this approach CQC carried out a review of the data available to CQC about Little London Surgery  on 10/06/2021 

CQC have not found evidence that they need to carry out an inspection or reassess Little London Surgery rating at this stage. This could change at any time if CQC receive new information.

CQC will continue to monitor data about this service.

Please note, this does not amount to an assessment of the rating for this service under section 46 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

Following advice from public health leaders in Walsall, you are strongly encouraged to continue attending all medical appointments – including going for your COVID-19 vaccination when you are invited.

The guidance is very clear that you can leave your home for essential purposes, even while extra testing is going on in your area. Medical appointments – including going for a COVID vaccination – are classed as essential.

Vaccination services are as safe as they can possibly be. All staff are tested the night before each session, while the utmost care is taken to keep premises clean and sanitised, and maintain social distancing.

It’s really important that everyone gets vaccinated when you get the opportunity. The vaccine is safe, it starts protecting you against all known strains of COVID after your first dose, and it is the best defence we have against the virus when used alongside proper social distancing, wearing a mask and washing hands.

Please note: if you or someone you live with are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, you must not go to any healthcare appointment. You should notify your healthcare provider, who will be pleased to book you another appointment.

You must self-isolate and call 119 to book a test if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • A new, continuous cough
  • A high temperature or fever
  • Loss of or change to your sense of taste and smell

Your local NHS in the Black Country and West Birmingham is still here for you, but how you access our services has changed due to COVID-19.

If you are feeling unwell or if you have any health symptoms that you are worried about, please contact us online through this website or call us in the first instance. You can no longer walk-in to your GP practice without an appointment.

If advice and treatment is not possible through an online triage or a telephone consultation, a face-to-face appointment will be arranged for you.

Local GPs are currently supporting the COVID-19 response in many ways and our resources are limited. Our GPs and practice staff will advise you on the best treatment and whether it is required at this time, as we try to ensure that those in most urgent need get the care they need as a priority. This may mean you need to wait a little longer than usual for treatment but if you have any concerns please talk to us.

We are open and fully operational, but these measures have been put in place to maintain and control social distancing and to keep local people and NHS staff safe.

If you are suffering a serious or life-threatening emergency, please call 999 immediately.

This has been reported to the Action Fraud Line.
