THE NHS has set up a service for people who find the Grenfell Tower inquiry emotionally disturbing.

The inquiry is opening next week with a focus on the residents who lost their lives but the NHS Grenfell Outreach Team (pictured) says it is “ready to help”.

The team, wearing green T-shirts, will be on-site at the inquiry in the Millennium Gloucester Hotel during hearings and also “in the community” at the Notting Hill Methodist Church.

The team is funded by Central North West London NHS Trust, which has also produced a film

ahead of the inquiry. It says: “Many people like you your children or neighbour could feel upset, traumatised, reliving experiences, have disturbed sleep or panic attacks. More people will be OK, but the NHS is ready to help.”
