Heatwave temperatures have today (24 Aug) arrived across London and the South East, prompting PHE to again urge people to take care in the hot weather.
The Met Office has issued:
- level 3 heatwave alert for the South East and London

Dr Thomas Waite, Consultant in Public Health Medicine and part of the Extreme Events team at PHE, said:
“We’re urging everyone to keep an eye on those you know who may be at-risk this summer. If you’re able, ask if your friends, family or neighbours need any help. There are lots of useful tips and guidance on NHS Choices website and more detail available in the Heatwave Plan for England.”
