Heat Wave

The Met Office has issued a hot weather warning – the North West is at 70% risk of heatwave conditions.
Stay out of the sun. Keep your home as cool as possible – shading windows and shutting them during the day may help. Open windows when it’s cooler at night. Drink plenty of fluids. If you know anyone, for example an older person living on their own, who might be at special risk, make sure they know what to do.
Check the NHS Choices website for advice on how to reduce the risk either for yourself or somebody you know – www.nhs.uk/summerhealth, or contact NHS 111 or your local chemist.
