The UK Health Security Agency publish their latest Flooding and Health guidance
Flooding can cause a range of health problems. There may be direct effects such as physical injury, or an increased risk of developing skin or gut infections through contact with contaminated food water. Longer-term effects can include mental health problems and chest problems due to exposure to mould and damp.
In England, most of the health burden linked to flooding comes from effects on people’s mental health and wellbeing.
