The aftermath of the Grenfell tower disaster is far reaching and ongoing. Nobody wants to see anything like this happen again, whether it is an apartment block or a hospital.
Three hospitals in England have failed fire safety checks ordered in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire. Buildings at London's King's College Hospital, Sheffield's children's hospital and the North Middlesex Trust have been found to have combustible cladding. Those three trusts along with another 16 have also introduced 24-hour fire warden patrols to improve safety. Checks on cladding used at five sites have yet to be finished. Of the three that failed, one - the building at King's College - is an office block and does not house patients. The other two sites have failed on buildings that house patients, but do not keep them in overnight. Steps are under way at all three to improve safety. But a spokesman for NHS Improvement, which regulates hospitals, said there would be "no disruption to patient services" while changes were made.
