Climate change and health8th May 2007
The Department of Health has published a report on the effects of climate change on the health of the population and how this impacts on the NHS. The DoH commissioned the independent scientific report in response to increasing concerns over the widespread consequences of global warming and climate change. Floods, heat waves and an increase in the number of tick-borne diseases are all listed as possible problems incurred by climate change. Recent hot summers in Europe have claimed many lives and flooding is becoming an increasing problem across the globe. The DoH has placed a draft of the report on its website, inviting comments from the public over the next 6 weeks.
