19 July 2024: There is a Yellow Heat Alert in place for much of the UK over the coming days. Here are some useful tips to stay safe and cool:

  • If you have neighbours or relatives who live alone or coping with health issues visit or phone to check that they are ok. 
  • Stay inside during the hottest time of the day – 11am to 3pm. 
  • When inside, try to keep your house cool. 
  • Have cool baths or showers and splash yourself with cool water. 
  • Change the timings of activities to avoid the hottest part of the day.
  • Stay hydrated drink lots of water throughout the day even if you aren’t thirsty. 
  • Eat normally but try to have more cold foods.
  • Check for weather forecasts and temperature warnings on TV, radio and online at
  • Know the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heatstroke and what to do if you or someone else has them.
