How we started, and where we are now
A 24-hour phone service was launched, providing the MedicAlert wearer's medical history, name, next of kin and address. To support this service, each MedicAlert discs now had a unique number to identify the wearer easily.
By 1961, MedicAlert Canada had formed as a non-profit in Toronto, closely followed by New Zealand and then the UK in 1964.
After the Lions Club endorsed MedicAlert in their international magazine, the Collins family took a six-week tour around Europe to promote MedicAlert to interested Lions Clubs.
With much support from Lions Clubs and Denis Gilchrist (a former Chair of The MedicAlert Foundation), as well as a headlining article in the 'Nursing Times', awareness of MedicAlert had increased in the UK and the ROI.
MedicAlert became a registered charity and with the London Ambulance Service, they launched an emergency phone line that was available in over 100 languages.
By 1971, MedicAlert Australia was born, and since then they have provided protection and peace-of-mind for hundreds of thousands of Australians.
The MedicAlert Foundation has grown internationally, with nine locations as far as South Africa and Malaysia, to nearer by locations such as Iceland and Cyprus.
In 2014, we celebrated our 50th anniversary in the UK and Ireland and to highlight this remarkable milestone we had a limited edition MedicAlert bracelet, beautifully handcrafted in 9ct gold.
