Our Dedicated Service - designed for you

Published on: Thursday 22 December 2022

As the end of the year approaches, the NHS wants to remind the Grenfell community (specifically survivors and the bereaved) that the Dedicated Service is available to support pre-existing and new health issues, such as diabetes, asthma, anxiety or low mood.

Although many people prefer to access these services through their GP, other referral routes are readily available through our Health Partners, or you can even self refer.

A booklet detailing all the services available as well as the referral routes is available in an easily accessible Dedicated Service booklet, which is available online in eight different languages, including English, Arabic, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Mary Mullix, North Kensington Recovery’s Director says: “The end of a year can be a hectic time for North Kensington and Grenfell-affected residents, but may be a time of quiet reflection for others. Wherever you are, it may provide an ideal opportunity to revisit what NHS services can be accessed in the New Year to support your health and wellbeing.

“The Dedicated Service booklet provides a useful reference point for the full range of services available and we encourage you to access this as a starting point to see whether an Enhanced Health Check, or an Extended GP appointment best meets your needs. Self Care is an alternative option for everyone. The booklet contains a useful infographic as a visual guide.

“Many people find the New Year brings a renewed desire to be active, so local community groups and activities are an ideal way to support your emotional health as well as keep fit. You can access these activities via one of our Health Partners or by accessing a range of services running from the St Charles Centre for Health and Wellbeing on Exmoor Street (call: 020 8969 2488).”
