London incident support pathways

The pathways aim to help services and communities respond to the needs of those people who are experiencing distress following the recent major incidents in London.

Following the recent major incidents in London, we have developed support pathways for staff across NHS systems. These have drawn heavily on the work undertaken in Manchester following the incident in May, and on London’s experts across the NHS, public health and from leading voluntary sector organisations.

The pathways aim to help services and communities respond to the needs of those people who are experiencing distress following the recent major incidents in London. The range of difficulties that may be experienced by people who are affected and the responses from services and the wider community that are most likely to be helpful are described.

We are indebted to our mental health colleagues across Greater Manchester whose work in developing a systematic response to the attack in their city has provided the main structure to these pathways. They have been extremely generous in sharing their time, expertise and outputs and we would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to them. We are united in our desire to work together to support those affected by attacks on our cities.
