Beat the Heat: Staying Safe in Hot Weather

PHE Leaflet

Although most of us welcome the summer sun, high temperatures can be harmful to your health. In one hot spell in August 2003 in England and Wales there were over 2,000 extra deaths than would normally be expected.

Public Health England along with NHS Engand have produced a guidance document on how to stay safe in hot weather, including how to keep your home cool. It tells you who is at greatest risk of ill health from the heat, how to recognise when you or someone’s health may be affected, and what to do if you or someone else becomes unwell as a result of the heat.

 More Information on enjoying the warm weather safely is available  here
