Local health services welcome funding commitment

Local health services have welcomed todays funding commitment made by NHS Chief Executive, Simon Stevens for those affected by the Grenfell tragedy and allow us to build on the work that had already taken place.

The announcement will provide reassurance to local residents that the NHS will be here long term to provide physical and mental health services and will also be able to put in place a screening service for Grenfell community.

Mona Hayat, Director of North Kensington Recovery, West London CCG and Robyn Doran, Chief Operating Officer, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust said, “This is really good news and underlies our commitment to listening and working with the community to develop services that meet their needs. This is something many have wanted to see; a coordinated service for mental and physical health concerns, and now, with the communities support, we will be as Simon Stevens said, imminently introducing a new screening service.”

Over the next few weeks and months we will be working with people from Grenfell Tower and the local community to develop the new service.
