Staying cool in a heatwave

We all love hot weather, but if it is too hot for a long time, it can start to impact our health. 

The Met Office officially send out heat health alerts from June to the end of September, if temperatures are expected to exceed safe levels. Information about health and heatwaves can be found in the national heatwave plan which looks at protecting from harm caused by severe heat and heatwaves.  

You can find lots of information about how to stay well during a heatwave on the NHS Choices website, or using the 'Beat the Heat' poster from Public Health England. 

The latest heat health alerts can be found on the Met Office website
