How MedicAlert can help you

We know that living with epilepsy can be challenging

Currently, over 500,000 people in the UK have epilepsy. That’s about one in every 100 people, with 87 people being diagnosed with epilespy every day1.


Seizures, the main symptom of epilepsy, affect people in different ways2. They may cause loss of awareness, inability to respond, loss of consciousness, jerky body movements, trouble breathing or the inability to remain standing. Regardless of the type of seizure, the symptoms can be scary and cause the individual to lose confidence and independence. 

"I would recommend MedicAlert to anyone; it is a way of alerting emergency services to what they are dealing with" - Andy Bustin

How MedicAlert can help you

In an emergency, such as experiencing status epilepticus, every second truly counts. Early treatment can save your life and limit the chance of brain damage3. Those caring for you can support you best if they know the cause of your seizures, avoiding misleading signs that can be mistakenly associated to drunkenness or sleepiness

MedicAlert ID allows access to information about your medical conditions, history and any medications you may take.

During an emergency

When every moment matters, you may be unable to speak or recall your vital information in a stressful, unexpected situation.

MedicAlert supports you

Your jewellery will alert emergency professionals to your most crucial information through the custom-engraving on the back of your disc.

by relaying information

for fast accurate treatment

Risks of error and complications are heavily reduced, ultimately helping you to get back on your feet and back to normality.

"People with epilepsy tell us they are often unfairly accused of being drunk as they recover from a seizure.
Young people with the condition feel they are at increased risk of being wrongly accused, as slurred speech, confusion and the inability to walk properly after a seizure, lead people to think they have been binge drinking or taking drugs."
