Abstract The Met Office is a science-led organisation with underpinning weather and climate scientific capabilities that range from short-range predictions to decades, centuries and climate time scales. This seamless prediction capability is one of the Met Office's unique strengths. This presentation provides an overview of current Met Office services that support the health sector (such as for example, regular heat/cold alerts, daily pollen and air quality forecasts) and introduces recent scientific advances and innovative tools with potential to underpin new services, such as DECIDER and MEDMI. DECIDER is a probabilistic weather-regime forecast and decision tool, based on large amounts of ensemble data, that can be applied to specific high impact weather risks (e.g. coastal flooding, landslides, extreme heat and cold). The MEDMI tool connects disparate environmental, climate, weather and medical data sets with the view to support policy and public health decision-makers. Further scientific capabilities, related to the One Health agenda, such as animal (e.g. airborne diseases) and plant health will also be presented. Finally, we will introduce the National Hazards Partnership (NHP), a consortium of 17 public bodies that builds on its partners' natural hazard science, expertise and services to deliver coordinated, impact-based advice for civil contingencies, local authorities and government departments across the UK, with a specific emphasis on risk reduction and prevention.We will highlight collaborative opportunities aligned to national (e. g. National Risk Register) and international capability (e.g. UN Sustainable Development Goals and Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction).Conference themes: global and environment; addressing risk factors.
