Keeping well this winter

Published on: Wednesday 19 October 2022

The NHS has services local to you that make it easy to access support during the cold winter months.

Flu jabs and Covid boosters can be booked online through the National Booking Service or by calling 119. You can also visit a vaccine centre or the pop up bus located at Kensington Town Hall. Details of local sites can be found here. These vaccines are also available from the local pharmacy as an alternative to contacting GP practices.

Extra length, Grenfell-specific GP extended appointments and annual enhanced health checks continue being offered by GPs to support Grenfell-affected residents, but those feeling especially worried and anxious are advised to call the dedicated Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service helpline on 020 8637 6279 (open Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm).

Additionally if you need urgent help, the St Charles Urgent Care Centre, has a walk-in service which is nurse-led. It can help with minor injuries and illnesses and provides same day access and care. The service runs seven days a week, 8am-6pm and is open on bank holidays (excluding Christmas Day).

Residents who need practical financial advice and support can access more help here.
