NHS paper reflects on tragedies of 2017

On the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire, a new NHS Confederation paper considers the learning from the NHS’s response to the tragedy which claimed 72 lives.

Featuring an interview with the clinical director leading the mental health response to the blaze, When tragedy strikes also reflects on the health service’s response to the harrowing terrorist attacks of 2017, including the Manchester Arena bombing and London Bridge attacks.

Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust’s Dr John Green shares his insights into how health and care services have worked together to support people affected by the tragic events of 14 June last year, outlining key learning for NHS organisations across the country. Alongside this, the publication has interviews with Lord Kerslake, chair of the review into the emergency response to the Manchester Arena bombing, and Professor Chris Moran, NHS England’s trauma director.
