Beat the Heat

As summer approaches Public Health England is drawing attention to the Heatwave Plan for England.

No changes have been made to the plan this year which will remain in place until further notice.

Three new resources have been developed:

  1. ‘Beat the Heat’ poster: an infographic for the public with key advice for staying safe in hot weather
  2. ‘Beat the Heat’ supporting leaflet: detailed information for the public about how to stay safe in hot weather
  3. ‘Beat the Heat: keep cool at home – checklist’: a checklist to help people identify situations where overheating in the home may cause harm to health, the actions to take, and how to access further help and support. This resource is aimed at members of the public as well as frontline workers (for example, health and social care staff)

These documents are available alongside the Heatwave Plan for England and other supporting material at
