Temperature check An Amber weather warning for Extreme Heat has been issued by the Met Office. The warning is currently for Sunday 17th July 2022 to Tuesday 19th July 2022.

The warning covers much of England and the Eastern side of Wales and includes the Neath Port Talbot area although it is probable that Swansea will also experience high temperatures.

We are providing this message so you can plan ahead and ensure that any activity that you, colleagues or our student community are undertaking, takes this into account.

Public Health Wales (PHW) has guidance for extreme heat weather and can be accessed HERE.

The guidance includes advice on how to look after yourself and how to keep your indoor environment cool. A poster with further information can be accessed HERE.

Blood stock The Welsh Blood Service are calling on Swansea University students to start their life saving journey.

Blood donations can be used for so much, from helping mothers and babies during childbirth, supporting cancer patients as they receive chemotherapy, to providing emergency blood donations following accidents and emergencies.

Your one donation could possibly save 3 lives. Only 3% of the population donate. Please make a difference.

Visit https://wbs.wales/SwanMyUniHub to book a lifesaving donation.
