Following the Grenfell fire, enhanced health checks were introduced as a result of community concerns. The health checks are delivered though general practitioner practices and a community provider.
Since the health checks were established, 1,097 assessments have taken place (to July 2019). Of the 1,097 assessments that have taken place, 52 related to children and young people up to the age of 18. The remainder were adults. The precise age of those individuals assessed has not been collected at this stage but is something that will be considered going forward.
Additional National Health Service funding will provide up to £50 million over five years to support physical and mental health services as well as systematic health checks in the Grenfell area.
