Beat the heat: staying safe in hot weather Posted on 29 Jun 2020

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. The heat can affect anyone, but some people run a greater risk of serious harm. As our climate changes, hot spells are expected to be more frequent and more intense.  Click the downloads below for information on staying safe in hot weather:
