Slip, Slop, Slap – keep your family protected
Parents are being reminded to protect their children from the sun’s harmful rays during the current heatwave.
Clinical leaders from NHS Airedale Wharfedale and Craven, Bradford Districts and Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are asking families to stay protected and take extra care in the sun as schools break up for summer.
Young children and babies are especially vulnerable to the hot temperatures, so it is important to make sure they are well protected with high factor sun cream, clothes and hat. Babies aged under six months should NEVER be left in direct strong sunlight.
A quick way to remember the advice is:
- Slip on a t-shirt.
- Slop on some sun cream.
- Slap on a hat.
