Stay Cool In Hot Weather - advice from the local NHS
- Try to plan your day in a way that allows you to stay out of the heat
- Protect your skin from sunburn and skin cancer by using a high factor suncream
- If you can, avoid going out in the hottest part of the day (11am - 3pm). If you must go out, stay in the shade. Wear a hat and light loose fitting clothes, preferably cotton. If you will be outside for some time, take plenty of water with you.
- Take cool showers or baths and splash yourself several times a day with cold water, particularly your face and the back of your neck.
- Eat as you normally would. Try to eat more cold food, particularly salads and fruit, which contain water.
- Look after babies, children and older people. They are much more prone to the effects of heat. If you have older relatives or neighbours you can help simply by checking on them if possible every day, and reminding them to drink plenty and often. They should have a mixture of drinks including fruit juice and water. Help them to keep their house as cool as possible, drawing curtains during the day, ensuring ventilation at night or using a fan if necessary.
- Never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals

Call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
