Help us to help you by staying safe in the heat

People are urged to take care as hot temperatures continue across the UK.

The main risks posed by hot weather are:

Dehydration from not drinking enough water

Overheating, which can make symptoms worse for people who already have problems with their heart or breathing or long-term health conditions

Heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

While the good weather maybe welcome to some, it can also come with significant health risks particularly for the elderly, the very young, and people with long term health conditions, like diabetes, COPD, or heart failure.

It is really important for people of all ages, to make sure that they stay well and safe by drinking lots more water than usual to stay well hydrated. It is also advisable to stay out of the direct sun between the hours of 11am and 3pm and avoiding any extreme exercise or exertion during these times.  If you do start to feel unwell or poorly, then contact NHS 111 in the first instance.

If you need medical help that is not life-threatening, contact NHS 111 who will give you advice and point you to the best service for your needs.

More information staying well in hot weather is available on the NHS website.
