Country of origin: UK

The 2015 Heatwave Plan for England was published recently, and the MET Office is issuing Heatwave alerts from 1 June to 15 September 2015. The Heatwave plan for England remains a central part of the Department of Health’s support to the NHS, social care and local authorities, providing guidance on how to prepare for and respond to a heatwave which can affect everybody’s health, but particularly the most vulnerable people in society. The purpose of this heatwave plan is to reduce Summer deaths and illness by raising public awareness and triggering actions in the NHS, public health, social care and other community and voluntary organisations to support people who have health or economic circumstances that increase their vulnerability to heat.
