The Heatwave Plan for England - Protecting health and reducing harm from severe heat and heatwaves

This year's national Heatwave Plan for England has been reviewed and remains unchanged. The plan review coincides with the launch of the Met Office / Public Health England Heat Health Watch service, which runs from 1 June to 15 September. 

The national plan includes actions for NHS providers such as ourselves. Among these actions is a requirement for us to raise awareness about the harmful effects of heatwaves and what to do to ensure you stay safe as members of the public.

You can find more information about this in the Public Health England leaflet available here: Beat the Heat​.​
