Staying healthy in the heat – advice for patients

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has issued a heat-health 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 because of the heat.

PSNC has previously developed materials that 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. The UKHSA has also published a beat the heat poster which could be used in pharmacies to raise awareness.

The PSNC infographic could be displayed in the pharmacy or printed out to be handed out to patients as appropriate, whilst the graphics below could be used on social media.
