London Bridge and Borough Market attacks - June 2017

Following the terrorist attack in the London Bridge area, 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 attack. It describes 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.

London incident support pathway for children and young people: This document outlines the multi-agency care pathway for children, young people aged up to 18 years and their families who were directly or indirectly affected by the terrorist attack in London on 3 June 2017. The pathway has been developed using the Thrive framework (Anna Freud Centre and Tavistock and Portman NHS, 2014).
