Tips for keeping your cool in the hot weather

Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are serious conditions occurring when the body’s temperature rises and the internal organs start to shut down.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion range from muscle cramps, dizziness and nausea, vomiting and fainting.

The risk of heat stress is higher for young children and older adults as they are less likely to be able to tell you they are dehydrated. There are simple things you can do to prevent our most vulnerable from suffering dehydration, heat stress or worse.

Planning for your healthcare future - its never too early
