Health impacts of hot weather and the Heatwave Plan for EnglandHealth impacts of hot weather and the Heatwave Plan for England

Now the temperature is predicted to rise again, here is a reminder of the Heatwave Plan for England. It aims to prepare for, alert people to, and prevent, the major avoidable effects on health during periods of severe heat in England.

It recommends a series of steps to reduce the risks to health from prolonged exposure to severe heat for:

  • the NHS, local authorities, social care, and other public agencies
  • professionals working with people at risk
  • individuals, local communities and voluntary groups

Public Health England have produced a training slideset on the health impacts of hot weather and the Heatwave Plan for England for the health and social care system and the voluntary sector.

The slides contain a useful graphic on health related illnesses that providers can share with care workers.

More heatwave resources are available from here.
