Staying healthy in the heat – advice for patients (2021)


NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) has today issued a heat-health watch alert for the next few days.

During this heatwave, the public may turn to community pharmacy teams for advice about staying well during the hot weather or to seek assistance when feeling unwell as a result of the heat.

PSNC has previously developed a summary infographic which may be used by community pharmacy teams to communicate relevant messages contained in the Heatwave Plan for England and the NHS website guidance on how to cope in hot weather. Public health advice remains the same this year, despite the COVID-19 outbreak.

The PSNC infographic could be displayed in the pharmacy or printed out to be handed out to patients as appropriate.
