Public Health England (PHE) is continuing to commission monitoring for pollutants that have both short and long-term effects, to assess whether there is any risk to public health as a result of the Grenfell fire.

PHE will keep local people updated with results. Individuals who were directly impacted by the smoke and who were admitted to hospital are being followed up by respiratory physicians at Imperial College NHS Trust.
