As the news of COVID-19 continues to develop, we want to create the safest possible environment for our children and families as well as staff in these difficult times. As a healthcare provider we are closely monitoring the national guidance and continually updating our methods of prevention to keep you and our teams safe.
Currently, due to the pandemic, services cannot see children and families; this includes the Specialist Assessment Service (SAS). Therefore all of our scheduled appointments have been cancelled and we are not taking children off our waiting list at this point in time.
Once the guidelines allow us to do so, we will start to take children off the waiting list again. We will offer appointments in referral date order, from the waiting list. If you have any specific queries then please contact us on Tel; 0121 722 8010. However we have limited administrative cover and it may take us a few days to be able to return any calls.
In the meantime we wanted to share some useful resources with you and also to invite your child to take part in creating us a rainbow picture.
- We are continually updating our website with new information as we receive it so please keep checking our Coronavirus page for the most current information and resources to support your child during this time.
- FREE online parenting courses are available for Solihull families at In Our Place
Use the FREE code: APPLEJACKS
- Our Resources and Information for Children, Young People and Families page can signpost you to organisations offering support while children and young people are awaiting assessment with SAS.
Please encourage your child to send us a rainbow. All rainbows will be displayed at Chelmsley Wood Primary Care Centre as the Centre is being used daily by a wide range of NHS staff who are working at this difficult time. Further information can be found here.
We wish you and your family well and hope you all remain safe at this time.
