Heat Health

The warmer weather is finally here, with the lighter evenings and more of us spending time outside. Whilst many of us enjoy the hot weather, when it is too hot, it can cause risks to people’s health and make them become unwell. Those who are elderly, live on their own or have serious or long-term illness, as well as babies and the very young, are most at risk during heatwaves therefore it is important you know what to do when one happens.

That’s why we have created our Heat Health page, which brings together local advice, top tips and guidance so you have all the information you need, in one place, to stay safe and healthy over the Summer period during the hotter weather.

On this page you will find lots of information on looking after yourself and those around you during the hotter weather - from staying hydrated, to sun safety and keeping food hygienic.

So look through our advice and top tips below and, where needed, reach out to our services to find out more or sign up for the support on offer.
