MedicAlert is the original and only charity provider of medical ID services in the UK.

Your nurse-checked medical record is at the core of your MedicAlert membership, supported by your choice of medical ID jewellery. This provides easy access to your medical information. But how exactly does it all work in an emergency?

The process is designed to be as quick and efficient as possible.

When emergency responders first arrive on the scene, they will quickly check your pulse via your neck or your wrist, where you wear your ID. They are trained to look for the internationally recognised MedicAlert symbol on your ID jewellery. This will alert them to your most vital medical information, such as allergies and conditions, engraved on the back.

Our 24/7 emergency helpline and your unique membership number is also engraved. Medical professionals can then access your full record from anywhere in the world, at any time, in over 100 languages and dialects.

Using the information on your ID and your full record, those looking after you will be able to make appropriate care decisions based on your needs.

As MedicAlert will speak for you when you can’t, you and your loved ones will have peace of mind knowing that you would be safe in an emergency.

“Been a member for years, my bracelet is my voice if I am unable to explain my medical conditions and need help. A true life saver.”
