Looking after yourself and others during a heatwave.

Please have a look at THIS handy guide to looking after yourself and others during a heatwave.

Beat The Heat guide

Beat The Heat Leaflet

Continued high temperatures have triggered another health warning in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, with people urged to take extra precautions in the coming days. Hot weather can be uncomfortable for many people. However some people are especially at risk of being unwell in higher temperatures; older people, the very young and those with ongoing illnesses will feel the effects more acutely. Prompt action should be taken now to prevent these people becoming ill and requiring medical attention. If you see someone feeling dizzy, weak, anxious or have intense thirst and headache, move them to a cool place as soon as possible and give them some water or juice to rehydrate and cool down – if their symptoms continue, seek further medical advice from your pharmacist or doctor.”

Here are some practical tips on how to stay cool and cope with the hot weather:

  • look out for others, especially older people, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions
  • shade or cover windows that are exposed to direct sunlight during the day, and open windows at night when the temperature has dropped
  • drink plenty of water as sugary, alcoholic and caffeinated drinks, including tea and coffee, can make you more dehydrated
  • never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals
  • try to keep out of the sun between 11am to 3pm
  • walk in the shade, apply sunscreen and wear a hat, if you have to go out in the heat
  • avoid physical exertion in the hottest parts of the day
  • wear light, loose fitting cotton clothes
  • make sure you take water with you if you are travelling

EXTENDED ACCESS SURVEY

We have been asked to make additional routine appointments available to patients at times when the Practice is currently closed to the public.

We would like to obtain your feedback in terms of your preferred additional appointment availability. 

Please follow the link to the survey HERE to answer the question

Thank you for your time in helping us ensure we are working in a way that meets our Patient’s needs. Please look out for the additional appointments as they become available.
