The sun is out— and East Ren’s health improvement team have issued tips for staying safe this summer.

The team suggest carrying a hat and sunglasses, as well as wearing sunscreen and drinking lots of water.

ERC health convener Alan Lafferty said: “A&E have seen a number of patients who have had too much sun but could have been seen by their GP or NHS 24, then those who require emergency treatment will be seen quicker.”
