See your local doctor (General Practitioner or GP)
Your GP will fast track your appointment and give you a space to talk about your health with an experienced professional who knows your medical history.
GPs can book longer appointments for people affected by Grenfell. You will have plenty of time to talk about everything you are experiencing.
If you are not registered with a GP you can find out how to register online at www.nhs.uk, or do it in person at your nearest practice. You don’t need ID or proof of address to register. If you need help filling out the forms, email firstname.lastname@example.org
A range of support is also available from local faith, charity and community groups. Your GP will have a list of these groups.
