NHS Health & Wellbeing support in North Kensington
A Message from Dr Meena Nathan, North Kensington GP
It continues to be a difficult time for many people and there are additional stressors to the North Kensington community including the recent restart of the Public Inquiry
We would encourage people to be particularly mindful of their emotional and mental health and wellbeing, and those of their loved ones too.
The NHS is here to help, please reach out to one of our services.
- If you or someone you know needs to talk, please get in touch with the NHS Grenfell Health & Wellbeing Service, open Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm on 020 8637 6279.
- If you would like to speak to your GP you can book an extended 30 minute appointment in North Kensington. You can also book in for a Health Check.
- Take time out to take care of yourself; going for a walk and getting enough daylight, speaking with friends or neighbours and getting a good night’s rest can all help. The Sleepio app supports people to get their sleep back on track, see more information in the attached document. There are also other sleep and guided meditation tools your GP can refer you to. You can also access the self-care directory for local activities in the area www.kcsc.org.uk/self-care-directory.
- The Public Inquiry is also providing free counselling telephone support & zoom drop in sessions each day through Hestia. Find out more information by calling 0800 246 5617 or visiting www.hestia.org/grenfell-support
