Staying well in summer
Work has been ongoing in Warwickshire for a number of years to reduce the risk that hot weather poses to health, including causing health complications for people with heart and lung conditions. Every year, detailed planning takes place prior to the summer to put in place measures to minimise the impact of hot weather on the population and on health and social care services.
Part of this involves communicating information to frontline health and social care services to ensure they are protecting their most vulnerable patients or service users, and that key messages are being conveyed to the public. Similar types of preparation also take place for cold weather.
