The Met Office Yellow Heat Health Alert

The Met Office have announced a Yellow Heat Health Alert from 2.00pm today, Monday 4 September 2023, to 9.00pm Wednesday 10 September 2023. You can view the full warning at the Met Office Heat Health Alert service website.

Hot weather can affect your health. The people most likely to be affected are the elderly, the very young, and people with pre-existing medical conditions. To plan for the potential risk to health if we do see extreme temperatures, please ensure that you have considered how these risks can be mitigated through measures that your setting can control over the next week, if you have not already done so. Also, please don't forget about any animals in your care and view the top tips for keeping pets cool in hot weather by using the RSPCA link below.
