We are all enjoying the lovely weather we are having at the moment but please take a minute to think about enjoying the sun safely.

The Department of Health has issued a revised heatwave plan and guidance to raise awareness about how to prepare for severe hot weather and potential heatwaves, including an Action Plan giving individuals, professionals and organisations advice on how to respond to a spell of severe heat to protect vulnerable people. The guidance includes a new version of: “Heatwave: supporting vulnerable people before and during a heatwave – advice for health and social care professionals”
