Heatwave alert 

18/07/2013 00:00 

As temperatures remain around 30ºC in London and the south east, the Met Office has issued a level 3 heatwave alert. 

UCH in the sun

We recommend all patients and visitors travelling to UCLH to take precautions to keep cool. The young, older people and seriously ill are particularly at risk of health problems when the weather is hot. Drink plenty of water, wear loose and light-weight clothing and use sun cream as appropriate. You can find more advice about how to stay cool from NHS Choices and the Department of Health's leaflet "Looking after yourself and others during hot weather".
