Safer Summer Advice
       
  • Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated.
  • Keep out of the sun between 11.00 and 15.00 - the hottest part of the day                  
  • Avoid any strenuous activity   

  • Make sure you look after those most at risk - older people and small children.

  • Wear plenty of sunscreen, the higher factor the better - ask your pharmacist about the best protection for your skin type

 

Could you check in on a loved one or neighbour?

Those who are elderly, very young, or anyone living with a health condition, may find hot weather particularly challenging. You can always pick up the phone, make a video call, or  pop round to check on your loved ones or neighbours, especially those who live alone.

Show you care and make sure they have everything they need to stay cool, safe and well - all while observing social distancing guidelines, of course.

Video call
