Staying Well During Hot Weather

As the local weather forecasters are predicting some more hot summer sunshine and periods of really hot weather, we thought it would be a good idea to review how to avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Heat exhaustion is not usually serious if you can cool down within 30 minutes. If it turns into heatstroke, it needs to be treated as an emergency. There’s a high risk of heat exhaustion or heatstroke during hot weather or exercise. To see the advice and what to look out for go to the NHS website for all the details and what symptoms to beware of.
