Stay safe during weekend's heatwave 

23/08/2019 00:00 
Temperatures are expected to hit around 30 degrees Celsius today across London and the south east, with the Met Office issuing a level 3 heatwave alert.

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 advice.
