Staying healthy in hot weather

When the outside temperature becomes too hot for too long, it can cause a number of health risks. The NHS has provided some useful suggestions to help yourself and others stay safe and hydrated during a heatwave. Top tips include:

  • Staying cool indoors.
  • Drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding excess alcohol.
  • Looking out for those who may struggle to keep themselves cool and hydrated.
  • Not leaving anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals.
  • Staying out of the sun between 11am to 3pm.
  • Walking in the shade, applying sunscreen regularly and wearing a wide brimmed hat outside.
