Staying healthy in the heat – advice for patients

Staying healthy in the heat – advice for patients

July 9, 2018

As the current heatwave continues, community pharmacy teams may be approached by patients to enquire about staying well during the hot weather or by someone who is feeling unwell as a result of the heat.

PSNC has produced a summary infographic which may be used by community pharmacy teams to communicate relevant messages contained in the Heatwave Plan for England and NHS Choices guidance on how to cope in hot weather.

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