What is MedicAlert® ?
MedicAlert® is the only non-profit making, registered charity providing a life-saving identification system for individuals with hidden medical conditions and allergies. This takes the form of body-worn bracelets or necklets (known as MedicAlert® Emblems) bearing the MedicAlert® symbol on the disc and supported by a 24 hour emergency telephone service. Each member receives an Emblem that is engraved with the wearer's main medical condition(s) or vital details, a personal ID number and a 24 hour emergency telephone number that can access their details from anywhere in the world in over 100 languages.
In an emergency, vital information is available on the back of the MedicAlert® disc. Medical and emergency personnel can then telephone the given number and by quoting the member's ID number and after clearing security checks, they can receive further important details where appropriate. For example: the member's name and address, doctor's details, current drug therapy or next of kin.
Bedworth Lions Club may sponsor people who require assistance with MedicAlert® membership fees.
