Excellent bracelets and great peace of mind
I'm so glad I got these since I was diagnosed with epilepsy as well as my other illnesses. When I have a seizure I cannot speak, have no recollection of it and it can take 2 days at least before I am functioning normally. These are great security anywhere in the world.

Request for new and updated Medic Alert Medallion
Communicating my requirements was not easy, it was referred to a nurse. I waited over 24 hours for a call back from her. She had put some thoughts into my requirements and I agree with her suggestions. Medallion arrived within a couple of weeks. I also requested a car sticker, which I have used but it is rather large for a window sticker.

Medic Alert
I have a complicated medical history and reactions to medicines. Medic Alert has given me so much peace of mind as I now feel happy to go out by myself, knowing that if anything did happen and I needed emergency help, all my details are accessible by the emergency services. Now instead of worrying, I can get on with enjoying myself!

Excellent
I recently received both a bracelet and dog tag style necklace after being diagnosed with Addisons Disease. Both items were as advertised, seem sturdy, and appear to have longevity. The alert is clear and legible and since wearing it several healthcare workers have noticed and asked about it. It’s easy to explain how to use the information so my mind is at ease that in the event I’m unable to communicate that my jewellery will communicate for me. The only negative for me was delivery, and this is only because I wanted the alert as soon as possible rather than anything holding the process up. It was all delivered in the stated timeframe. The bracelet and necklace are both very secure to wear, and I’m not worried that it will slide off. Definitely make sure you measure instead of guessing your size. 10/10 would recommend and I will be a return customer in future when needed.

Safe & Secure
I became a member of MedicAlert in 2020 following a minor medical trauma with my condition DIABETES INSIPIDUS that lead to me calling 111 for advice. The call response team at 111 have limited information at hand and continuously referred to Diabetes Mellitis. This added to my trauma and I declined further support from 111 on that occasion. I am a huge NHS supporter but realised that in an emergency I needed medics to be fully and clearly aware of my condition. I researched and settled on Medic Alert in the middle of the Covid pandemic. I wear a bracelet that makes me feel safe and secure knowing that the recognised medical icon will be there should the need arise. My medical condition isn't well known but I feel confident that the MedicAlert team will quickly pass on relevant information should the need arise.

Medic Alert helped save my life
I was due to be booked into a local hospital for a kidney removal operation along with removal of a large cancerous tumor. Upon reading the back of my medic alert bracelet the doctor changed the proposed hospital for one with a critical care unit. After the operation I was urgently admitted to this unit which was not available at the other hospital. In essence my medic alert bracelet saved my life.

Life savers
I cannot recommend this service enough. In my opinion if anyone has the slightest illness/disability they MUST join. This service have saved my life twice, with them knowing all my medication, and my allergies I am eternally grateful and if I become sick (for any reason) I know that I will be given all the correct medication.

Bad customer experience
Ordered a bracelet and waited 10 working days. Rang to find out where my bracelet was as it was 5 days over.. Was given a delivery date but still never arrived. After checking my app it stated my order hadn't even been produced. Funny enough after that phone call my app was updated for delivery the next day. I've now had my so called sterling silver silver bracelet for 4 weeks and has gone black ..this happened after just 2 weeks. I complained but was advised it was real. They offered a polish but at my expense to return. Yes I have peace of mind bur the service is definitely not upto it. I have decided to go to jewellers to get my bracelet polished as it saves on the expense on returning it .. Plus I need to where this daily for an allergy I have.. It will save my life but I'm.not happy with the experience plus the price I paid is alot for what you get
Hi Kelly, we are really sorry to hear you experience this problem. I believe our team has already been in touch with you but if you require additional support, please email us on info@medicalert.org.uk if you need any help and we will do our best to assist you. - The MedicAlert Team

Peace of mind
Membership of Medic Alert gives me peace of mind that in case of an emergency , healthcare professionals( HCP) would have access to my information quickly. I am on medication which must not be stopped suddenly but may interact with a lot of other medicines, so this is very important for me. I do agree with a previous reviewer that MedicAlert need to raise their profile so that all HCP are aware of the need to check if a patient is wearing any alerting ID e.g. tags, etc.

Peace of Mind
i have a complex neurological condition, and it is important that emergency services and medical personnel have access to my full records held at Medicalert BEFORE they commence any form of treatment. Knowing, that from the bracelet that i wear and from the card i carry in my phone case, medics can access my records and act accordingly. this gives me and my family great peace of mind.

Good customer service, but some product limitations.
I can’t fault the customer service, when my purchased Endurance bracelet failed twice in the first week and I wanted to change it for a dog tag, the fault was identified as caused by a faulty batch of spring pins. I agreed to try it with replacement pins and these arrived within a week and have not failed since. Unfortunately the Endurance bracelet was mot ny first choice of emblem, but as I have a large wrist, and needed a large emblem, it was (Anything else wasn’t long enough strap and too small an emblem). I still regret not going for the dog tag again, which I had for many years previously, and wore day and night. Now I have to remember to put the Endurance bracelet on each time I go out. Wish I had refused the offer of new pins.

Peace of mind
Worn a medic alert bracelet for approximately 50 years but, agree with other reviews that MA could benefit from promotion. Orders for jewellery are checked now and a Big " Thank you " to Sarah ( sorry no surname ! ) who spoke with me and as a result changed what I had requested to be written on my bracelet, which was far more relevant! and makes me feel safer now.

GOOD TO HAVE MEDICALERT
HAVING BEEN A MEMBER FOR MANY YEARS, I FIND HAVING THE BRACELET ON MY WRIST A COMFORT. LIVING ALONE AND TRAVELING ALONE WITH A CHRONIC LIFE LONG CONDITION, HAVING THE REASSURANCE OF MEDIC ALERT MAKES LIFE BETTER. HOWEVER, I MUST SAY THAT I WOULD LIKE MEDIC ALERT TO RAISE IT'S PROFILE. RARELY DO I SEE ANY POSTERS, ADVERTS OR ALIKE ANYWHERE, EVEN AT HOSPITALS. I HAVE ALSO HAD TO EXPLAIN WHAT MY MEDIC ALERT IS ABOUT. HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS SHOULD ALSO BE MADE AWARE OF MEDIC ALERT, SO THEY KNOW MORE MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT A PATIENT.

Peace of mind . . .
Since joining MedicAlert in June, '22, I have been hospitalised several times. My MedicAlert wrist-band & wallet card have provided vital information at triage. Time was saved & treatment plans organised more quickly because the Health Professionals had a much clearer idea of my complex co-morbidities. Diagnosis & Prognosis were far better supported.

Response to loss of ID tag
I lost my new ID tag and reported it. Anthony kindly responded by email to reassure me that Medic Alert would be in touch if they received any news. In the meantime, he would report the weak fastening on the tag. By the way, the tag arrived well in time for my walking holiday. Shame it was lost.

Peace of mind.
I have epilepsy, if I have a seizure with a head injury I need a 999 ambulance, I am also taking Warfarin which also requires a 999 ambulance following any head injury, if I was alone, without the information on the bracelet, I could become seriously unwell, I feel more confident that in an emergency situation my needs are more likely to be met and my next of kin would be informed, the website is not entirely straight forward, but I’ve managed to work it out on the two occasions I have used it by entering a key word in the search bar.
Hi Wendy, thank you for your feedback regarding the website. We are working really hard to optimise it as much as possible, so hopefully, in the near future, you will find it much easier to navigate. We are happy to hear we are providing you with peace of mind.

Complicated Website and Join Up Process
Found the online join up process time consuming and frustrating compared to filling in a paper form. Payment may have been taken twice but I'm really not sure. I never could work out if the bracelet was included in the initial membership and trying to find out was so hard I gave up on getting one in the end.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very unlikely

Q: Why would you not recommend?
I'm autistic, and the complexity of the online form is so much I wouldn't recommend it.

Hi Shaun, we are really sorry to hear you experience this problem whilst signing up. We are working hard to make the process as accessible as possible but we are constrained by the limits of modern technology as well as the amount of data we require from you. We understand that people living with ASD may need additional support, so please feel free to pop us an email on info@medicalert.org.uk if you need any help and we will do our best to assist you. - The MedicAlert Team

Feel more at ease
I found the staff very polite and helpful. The process was easy and straightforward, and both my partner and I feel a lot more at ease now we know that if we are unable to let medics know our allergies and medicines, they can access the information quickly.

helpful and efficient
I logged on to change some medical detail and also to order a new bracelet as the details would need changing. I opted for chat and was offered a phone call discuss changes and make my order. They were extremely helpful and made sure I had all the correct information in place and that I was happy with my selection. It is lovely to be able to speak to an actual person.

Awesome
My son is now 31, we used this service for many years. He has autism and many health difficulties. He was a runner as an infant and often went missing, the medic alert listed his needs and gave us peace of mind. When you cannot communicate and have health problems it is a double worry, thankfully with medic alert we were reassured that should we get separated his needs would be documented and responded to. Living with difficulties is stressful enough so when we heard about medic alert it was one way of assuring he would receive the assistance needed if we were not there. Thank you

Access to my records when I can't communicate
My medical condition can result in loss of speech, sight, coordination and it will look like I have had a stroke. My verbal responses to questions cannot be relied upon. Having the Medic Alert system gives me the reassurance that medical personnel will have an early indication of what might be the cause of my illness and my next of kin can be contacted straight away.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Fairly likely

Q: What can we do to improve?
Do you have a repair service? I have previously ordered sports straps which have worn out or become dirty. Do you have a system whereby I can send you the medic alert disc so that a new strap can be fitted?

Hi Anne, thank you for your feedback. We do have a repair service, for more details, please visit our website - https://www.medicalert.org.uk/alterations-and-repairs/

Wearing medicalert ID has helped me twice when I required medical assistance. The hospital could get the required information from my wallet card and dog tags. MedicAlert gives me peace of mind 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world.

Fantastic!
As I am type 1 diabetic, I ordered a MedicAlert bracelet to replace my old one that I'd had for several years and the new one is so much better, fits just right and arrived in a very short time. The previous bracelet had a Velcro fastening that became very worn and kept undoing itself but this new one feels very secure. So, excellent all round, thank you!

An excellent service
I have recently become a member again due, mainly, to a deterioration in my general health. I have conditions and am taking certain medications that anyone assisting me in the future needs to be aware of my condition. Medic alert provides such a safeguard against misdiagnosis or medications being not being given or incorrectly being given. Medic Alert has given me peace of mind when going out.

OUTSTANDING !!!!!!!
I've got to admit, I have been a stupid PLUM. I have been a member since having 3 cardiac arrests in one night back in Feb 2012, I'm only here today because of my youngest daughter {19 at the time } who started CPR on me, and stayed by my side and helped those great guys we all know as paramedics & doctors. Ten years later and so many changes to medications and 2 ICD implants and more serious health problems. My daughter set up my account and told me "Dad, you must keep it up to date!", and so did I !!!! PLUM !!!! Today is the 1st time I've really used a computer and I've just spent 4hrs updating everything and setting up an online account, I've even paid £4.99 to get the wallet app on my mobile. {GET ME } but seriously people if you know someone like me, who just buries their head in the sand, tell them to join, and sign up it really is easy, and the guys on the phones are just the best so polite friendly they make you feel so great.

What is the point?
I joined this service because a leaflet about it was given to me at the hospital. So far I've bought a rather expensive bracelet, authorised an annual direct debit and uploaded a document about the medical trial I am in. I admit I'm having some difficulty experiencing this as good value, given that the only circumstance in which I might find the service useful is if I was in a car accident and so severely injured that I could not communicate. Even then, the medical staff could get my medical details from my i-watch. The event has a probability of around one in a hundred thousand. I would not take out insurance on those odds, so I am wondering why I am a member of medicalert.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very unlikely

Q:

Hello Jane, We certainly do hope that you will not experience a situation in which our service is needed. Unfortunately, however, our members experience situations in which their vital medical information is needed by those caring for them, and where they cannot communicate them themselves, every day. They may struggle to communicate due to being unconscious, being in shock, or their medical details being too lengthy to retain and concisely explain. Having access to the individuals details mean that fatal errors can be avoided, the right treatment provided as quickly as possible, and lives being saved. We hope you do find value in our charity's service but if you have any further questions about the elements of our service, we'd be happy to help further. Kind Regards, MedicAlert

Peace of mind
I have subscribed to MedicAlert for many years. I wear a MedicAlert silver bracelet bought many years ago and still in tip top condition. By continuing my membership I have peace of mind that should I need urgent treatment the details of my allergy will be available instantly and my medical history there with one phone call.

Review of Membership
Why am I a Member of Medic Alert? Simply because it means that if I'm involved in some accident or suddenly taken ill, medical personnel will very quickly be able to identify and take action regarding my special medical need of being steroid dependent. This is very reassuring, since without swift action being taken there is a significant possibility that I would lose my life. So, I am very grateful for the MedicAlert scheme and the bracelet that I wear continuously.

Simple and quick process
I am a new-ish member, having joined April 2022. The whole process from start to finish was easy and quick; from picking the style and type of ID, to receiving the product could not having been more straightforward. Thankfully, I have not had to use the emergency service!

While I wear bracelet all the time, it is never used when I am post ictal on ground. The public & medical crew aren’t familiar with Medic Alert.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Neutral

Q: What can we do to improve?
Increase marketing of the service & benefit the product / service provides

Hi Anthony, thank you for your feedback. We are working with the NHS to educate their staff on the uses of medical IDs and we do provide training resources to healthcare professionals. We try our very best to get training resources out to all of the different areas of the NHS and emergency services, however as a small charity it is sometimes difficult to reach absolutely everywhere, but we will continue to spread the word. -The MedicAlert Team.

Outstanding telephone conversation.
I've only just joined MedicAlert, so going through the checking/submitting medical details. I was phoned today by one of MAs nurses who needed to clarify and, as it turned out, radically re-prioritise some of my health issues. Without her expertise & patience, I would never have known just how serious one of my conditions was & needed to be right at the top of the list. I can't praise her professionalism highly enough & my gratitude knows no bounds.

Refused CPR
I have signed Advanced Decision to refuse CPR and certain treatments and sent in copy to Medic Alert. I wanted anyone who found me collapsed to know I had refused CPR. Wearing the Medic Alert necklace makes this information easily available and so I feel safer.

Hi John, thank you so much for your feedback. We are always looking to improve our service and website, so we are grateful for your comments.

Main Benefits for Me
I have 3 chronic medical conditions, so have peace of mind to wear a bracelet as an ankle chain and carry a wallet card in my pocket. Hopefully, in case of accident or other situations, these will be found, MedicAlert contacted and lead to my being treated accordingly. Well worth the membership fee.

Very Useful and Necessary
Carry MedicAlert Dog Tag all the time. Suffer Diabetes and IPF and would not want to be ill and collapsed and people thinking I am Drunk or on Drugs and just ignoring me. Also in case of an accident I want medical staff to know what could be affecting me. Very very useful and in my opinion A Must

Disastrous website and communications
I have tried several times over the past week to join and purchase jewellery but the website is slow and cumbersome. I have also liaised by email, culminating in being sent a discount code which was a pleasant surprise. However, when I tried to use it, the code was rejected as being invalid or out of date. I tried to use it the same day I received it via email. I have just tried to do the whole process again and all my details have been lost which means I would have to start from scratch on my medical records etc, which took ages to get right. So disappointed I cannot tell you. I am now looking for alternatives to MedicAlert on Amazon, so if anyone knows a better product please let me know
Hi Thomas, thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear you have had such a hard time getting signed up on our website. If you did still wish to join MedicAlert, we would be happy to help you. The best way may be to simply call us on 01908 951045 and we would be able to walk you through the process over the phone.

New member, products and service
I am a new member and needed to join as I had major surgery last year, plus have medical allergies and some other health things that I’d like to know were known about should I be poorly and need medical help. I was very impressed with the help I received when I rang up to join. I had a few problems in the first few weeks getting things right but all were sorted out swiftly by the team, the nurses and I relaxed. The products and service has been great. The website is easy to fill in and upload all medical details, medications, concerns etc. As a retired nurse I know how important medical history and all it entails is, so this is really a great peace of mind. I am sure if I need further advice or help now I’m a member it will be there for me. I have already recommended this to several friends. Thank you everyone.

OK, but needs to publicise more
I joined up over 25 years ago because of allergies & other medical conditions. In 2019 I had a severe allergic reaction; the paramedics looked at my bracelet but the hospital staff ignored it. I've had other instances where medical staff ignore my bracelet. More needs to be done to publicise the potentially life-saving information provided by MedicAlert & similar services through their bracelets & tokens.
Thanks for your review, it's always useful to hear this type of feedback. We send educational resources to GPs, Hospitals, training facilities and more, but as a small charity it is sometimes difficult to reach everyone. If there are any specific places you have been to where it should have been recognised but was not, then please do let us know and we can speak to them directly.

Records what the NHS forgot
As my GP record is blank, my MedicAlert record is the only one accessible by practitioners when they treat me, perhaps in an emergency. Obviously MedicAlert is better at handling one’s personal data than the NHS!

Giving peace of mind
I have been an identity bracelet/necklace for 45 years. My first was from medic alert and then I changed to another for a short time. I came back to medic alert due to the fact that the information is always available if needed and it’s easy to update and renew membership online when/if needed. Lucky enough not to have used the emergency service, so far, but it gives me peace of mind when I’m out and about.

Difficulty entering medical data
I could not figure out how to enter data in the way I wanted so asked for a call back. The nurse who rang me was very good and listened to my concerns, she was quickly able to enter data on my behalf and completed the rest of the membership and order very efficiently. Many thanks

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?

Q: Why would you recommend?
I have had an SOS Talisman for some years and was was horrified during a recent emergency admission to hospital that neither the Ambulance crew or Nursing staff seemed to know what it was! So I turned to Medic Alert as the leaders in the field.

horrified
I cannot give a proper rating for this. I have been horrified by the fact that nobody of the medical profession, not ambulance staff, nor hospital doctors / nurses / care workers... nobody cared to read or even consider looking at my Medicalert bracelet. Even the two 'nurses' / blood takers bothered to read it - everyone asked me about allergies (altho' I was whoozy) and blood group and medication. Nobody, even the 'nurse' / other operative who took my blood and removed my bracelet to clean the blood off it..... nobody looked at it, or used it to contact Medicalert to find out those answers. They relied on my poor, inaccurate memory to find out. I had been taken in as an emergency with pain around my rib cage. It was suspected as a possible heart problem. I had been awake and in pain all night. I was shocked. It looks like you need to make medical staff aware of your service.... no publicity = no effect .... think about it.
Hi Maria, thank you for your review. Paramedics are trained about Medical IDs at the very beginning of their training, however due to the different training done in different areas, this training can vary. Some paramedics are trained to always check IDs, some are trained to only check them if the patient is unconscious. We try our very best to get training recourses out to all of the different areas of the NHS and emergency services, however as a small charity it is sometimes difficult to reach absolutely everywhere, especially with the high turn over of staff at the NHS. If you are able to, please may you send us the details of the hospital you went to so that we can send them some more training recourses so that this does not happen to anyone else? Thank you.

Silicone bracelet
I think the yearly membership is to expensive for what you get. Plus I just bought a expensive silicone bracelet from medic alert and it's so uncomfortable. Not happy at all!
Hi Robert, thank you for your review. We try to keep our costs as low as we possibly can for the service we provide. you can see exactly what your annual subscription goes towards here: www.medicalert.org.uk/pricing/ If you are unable to afford our service, we do offer some programmes (funded by kind member donations) that help discount our service, so that everyone is able to use our lifesaving service. If you wanted to apply for these, please contact us directly.

Sense of security
I've never had to rely on the band, buut it does give me comfort when travelling (for example, to Latin America where I used to live). It is comfortable and pratical - I've worn my band while swimming in very cold water with no problems. So all in all a great product.

Reassurance is the key
I've been a member with my engraved bracelet since 2000. I have endured 3 cardiac arrests, 4 ICDs and open heart surgery since 1994. Happily, no emergency has arisen requiring a call to Medicalert yet. But I wouldn't want to be without it.

Excellent service that provides peace of mind!
So glad that I became a member four years ago. Fortunately I have not been in an emergency situation since joining but the one thing that membership gives me can be summed up in one word - "reassurance". Have found the staff at Medic Alert to be most helpful every time I have needed to contact them with queries or amendments to my details. A highly recommended company.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very likely

Q: Why would you recommend?
Staff helpful and knowledgeable. The type of service that Medic Alert provide is needed more than ever these days with the numerous problems experienced when using the NHS and continuing problems surrounding the coronavirus outbreak.

Piece of mind....
I joined Medic Alert back in 1997 after being diagnosed with a life threatening illness. To date, I have been lucky enough not to have had to use their services, but knowing they have all my information and are there 24/7, 365 days a year makes all the difference. Should anything happen my ID bracelet carries all the information necessary to make the call that could hopefully save my life.....

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?

Cannot figure out how to replace a lost bracelet
I have been all over this website a hundred times but there doesn’t seem to be a way to order a replacement bracelet. It’s probably just me but I can’t get through to the online chat either for advice.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very likely

Q: Why would you recommend?
It makes me feel much safer

Hi Lisa, you will be able to browse through all of our products by going to the 'SHOP' part of our website, there you can choose an ID to replace your previous one. To order the bracelet you will need to be logged in so that you can choose, from your record, what will be engraved on the ID. If you do have any more difficulty, may I suggest phoning us on 01908 951045 and we can help you replace your ID. (Our opening hours are 8am till 3:30pm)

Disappointed
Unfortunately I have had problems with ordering braclets that fit properly and am disappointed with the service I have had with regards to this
MedicAlert response - I am sorry to hear that you've had problems ordering a replacement bracelet. I can see from our records that we have attempted contact twice to understand the change the engraving that you would like made and, unfortunately, we cannot provide a replacement until we're sure that we have had a response regarding this as all IDs are custom made. We will attempt to contact you again directly to agree the correct engraving but please do also contact us on 01908 951045 (8am - 3:30pm, Monday-Friday) as soon as possible to allow us to proceed with resolving this issue.

Peace of mind
As someone with an ongoing medical issue who wishes to remain "normal" and not have my medical issue be the main focus when enjoying life it is a blessing to have a service that I know in time of need will ensure that the best care will be given as instant access to my medical condition and medication is available. As a plus it also gives peace of mind to family also aware that should I be in need of assistance while living my best life it is available at the end of a simple call.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Neutral

Q: What can we do to improve?
Perhaps make the general public more aware that not all conditions are visible but to look for the medic alert symbol on someone or in their possession if found in need of attention.

Membership charge
MedicAlert I am sure save many lives, however I feel that the membership cost is nothing more than ridiculous. It is such a shame.
Thank you for your feedback Melanie. As a charity, we keep our cost as low as possible at £36 per year, less than a takeaway coffee per month. Whilst we ask those who can afford to to pay, we also have a number of projects available to provide subsidised membership and/or medical IDs for those requiring assistance in accessing our service. If you'd like any information about these projects, please do get in contact.

Just try setting up your online account!
I have wasted most of a morning trying to set up my online account. Two operators have assured me the problem is now fixed, the last gave me a generic password to access the account which the system does not recognise. I’ve tried to ring for a third time and after waiting for an answer for over five minutes gave up. What a waste of time!
I am sorry to hear you're having some difficulties Rosie - we would like to contact you directly to resolve this issue. Please can you message us directly, using the form on www.medicalert.org.uk/contact-us with your contact details and the best time to call you.

slight problem
I am pleased with my new bracelet it is just what i ordered, the problem i have to report is that (after only a few weeks) the black lettering has not stayed in place, most of it has disappeared leaving it difficult for anyone to read. I would be grateful to receive some advice on how to resolve this matter

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?

Crap
Will not be recommending this crap website to anyone as says your entitled to a free card and then when u pay it’s £36 ? have made sure that they don’t advertise it on Facebook scamming (...)

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very unlikely

Q: Why would you not recommend?
Because your scammers

We're sorry to hear that you're disappointed and won't be recommending the charity's service, Mr Vaughan. We would like to reassure you that the charity is not a scam - we have been active in the UK for 57 years and are recommended by the NHS. All members are entitled to a free Wallet Card (which I believe you are referring to) with their first year's membership. Membership is normally £36 a year, a cost we aim to keep as low as possible to ensure we're accessible to those who need us. However, we do also provide free or subsidised membership via our Goodwill Project to those experiencing financial difficulties. We hope this clarifies our service and pricing but please do let us know if you have any further questions.

Very good!
I like the bracelet you have sent me, just a few days after I submitted everything. It feels just like my SOS bracelet did, except this time, I don't even need to take it off in the shower or anything, so I just have it on 24/7. o it's there all the time in the very rare event I should need it, and I don't even have to think about it. It's a bit thin, so FEELS like it might snap one day in a few years, (whether or not it does remains to be seen), so not 5 stars, and I occasionally check the clasp (as I did for my old SOS bracelet), but so far so good. A great service.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very likely

Q: Why would you recommend?
It is there round the clock; you can leave it on all the time so don't have a fiddly part getting it on each day; the phone number, your code, and vital information is engraved on the metal to get a bystander or whoever started with ringing you, it's light.

Terrible Customer Service
I recently became a member on behalf of my father but wish I had gone elsewhere. The customer service is terrible and you can never get through to anyone. You are on hold, speak to someone and then get cut off!!!
MedicAlert response: We are so sorry for our recent phone line issues. These only affect our member services line, not our 24/7 emergency helpline, and are being resolved. I understand that you did manage to get back in contact with the nurse you speaking with shortly after the issues occurred but if you require any further support, please do let us know.

Medic Alert is a vital part of my life ... but only one issue
I have had a bracelet for many many years and draw great comfort from this fact. Only issue re most recent purchase of a new one was the fact the bracelet fell off my wrist for no good reason. This was very worrying. The MedicAlert team were in the end very supportive and I was given my bracelet back with a larger lobster clasp However it did come off again and I was once again unnerved. I didn't make a fuss as the Team had had apparently no other such issues... so I began to think it must be ME ! My suggestion is that they should build in a safety ring or something that would hold the bracelet on the wrist if it should for any reason become likely to fall off. These MedicAlert items are not just ornamental ... they are our potential life savers.

Q: If you knew someone who could benefit from our service, would you recommend MedicAlert?
Very likely

Q: Why would you recommend?
I have already done this for a friend with MS ... I would not hesitate to recommend. The Team are delightful and the products are excellent in the main.

Hi Annie, I am sorry to hear about the clasp issues you have experienced. Please do get in contact if this is continuing with the current clasp. If you have a Silver or Gold item, we do offer a safety chain to safeguard against an item getting lost if the clasp catches and opens. For stainless steel, we offer the 'Forget-Me-Not' which has a ring to secure the bracelet long term. I hope these options help!

Hi I first joined medic alert in 1977... I think! In all of this time I have never had anything to fault them on. My records are available to me to check on details.

Silver Artisan Bracelet
Good website. Arrived quickly, Looks even better in reality than on the website. I have had many bracelets over the last 25 years and find Medic Alert ones are of a much superior quality. Engraving clear and legible, unlike other brands I have had. Warning: don't get it too big. My previous one lasted less than a week because I pulled off a sweater on the golf course and it came off and never saw it again. Silver scratches a bit, I had gold bracelet in the past , but they have become so expensive.

Correct help when really needed
As an old - usually fit - lady with an eclectic range of allergies, I always use MedicAlert. I understand that it is a thundering nuisance to have a patient who is allergic to all adhesives and to a range of medication. During two recent emergency hospital admissions, my MedicAlert bracelet and record proved invaluable; I had a high fever and was barely conscious, but the ambulance staff and then two sets of hospital staff were grateful for the info, and adjusted tests and treatment to allow for my allergies. My problems were traced to 'wandering' gallstones, and the infections and underlying cause were successfully treated. If you have allergies - use MedicAlert; you never know when it just might save your life.

Through a parents eyes
Signed up to MedicAlert a year ago in the safe knowledge that if my teenage daughter, who was newly diagnosed with several medical conditions, needed help that MedicAlert would not only help her as fast and efficient as they can, they would contact me as her parent. I felt confident in letting my child go out with friends, on their own or even on school trips that the information needed by medical assistants would be readily available rather than guessing her information or taking extra time with paperwork or not knowing at all. My child also felt more confident in leaving me & having freedom with the knowledge shes in safe hands with MedicAlert.

I've been a member now for a year and cannot say enough about how much I appreciate the service. Ordering my jewellery and the accurate engraving and delivery of my items was wonderful, and updating my record as needed has been so easy - a huge relief as I get used to my 'new normal' of having multiple heart conditions. Knowing my record will be available to First Responders and any emergency care needed has helped me feel safe, fully confident to get back out there and live my best life.

Praise due!
On Sunday the 3rd May, I realised that I had lost my Medic Alert bracelet. After searching the house, and even checking the route of our last walk, with no success I rang yourselves on Monday morning to order a new one. The young lady I spoke to was extremely helpful and when the order had been completed she advised me that it might take up to 10 days for my replacement bracelet to arrive but suggested that if I was out on my own I took my ‘Wallet’ card with me. My new bracelet has arrived this morning and so I wanted to thank all involved for such great service. We are all ready to complain when things go wrong but we often forget to give praise when it is due. Thank you once again

Outstanding
Just wanted to say a Thank You for the Amazing Customer Service I received yesterday. I got into difficulty trying to order my new bracelet on line. I was almost on completion of my order then accidently lost the screen altogether. Then I called you, I was helped by Nigel, who took me through the whole process, with great patience and understanding. Working out the order of placing my medical details onto by bracelet took some time, plus the fact we got disconnected ( probably my fault). However he never gave up and rang me back. All now sorted and ordered. Thank you once again,. He should certainly get the award for Outstanding Customer Service.!!!!!!

Peace of mind assured
Having worn my stainless steel bracelet for what seems ages, I have just taken the plunge and upgraded to the Classic Silver bracelet and disc. A lovely lady named Rebecca led me through the process, taking care that the bracelet and the details on the disc would be exactly what I required. Rebecca was very friendly and patiently answered all my questions, helping me also to put my membership renewal onto Direct Debit. One less worry for next year. The whole process from checking detail and updating my membership was a breeze. In summary, I am delighted with my service from Rebecca and MedicAlert. Peace of mind assured for another twelve months.

Joining MedicAlert was the best decision!
My daughter wears a classic necklace. She never takes it off because it makes her feel safe. She is extremely vulnerable when she is unwell and I can't always be with her. MedicAlert gives her the confidence to get on with her life, knowing that in the event of an emergency first responders will know what her conditions are and be able to treat her swiftly and correctly.

Dear MedicAlert. To all for all of your kind help, I rang up about my bracelet being fixed as it was broken and spoke to a kind lady. She told me what to do with it and I received it back after being fixed at your jewellers.

I have found MedicAlert excellent value for money and I even got my dad to join. So far I have never had to use my wallet card or watch but knowing it is always there if I was ever to need it gives me a lot of reassurance and I think the membership price is well worth having to give me that peace of mind.

Been Saved Many Times
Medic Alert is a fantastic service, just as long seen and read. I have Type 1 Diabetes and had 49 years now and Medic Alert has saved me many times. Just hospital that have been wrong not doing as Medic Alert says. A Medic Alert is a great thing to wear on wrist and helps Paramedic's, St. John Ambulance staff.

No longer a charity
Medic alert used to be fine. Register and buy a bracelet or necklace, and I knew should information be needed it was available on the telephone. Sadly, like a lot of charities, it has expanded its role and got greedy, so I no longer support it. Furthermore, they no longer seem to have the medical knowledge necessary to understand rare disorders.
Thank you for your feedback, Mick. I am really sorry you feel this way! MedicAlert has been supporting people in the UK for over 55 years now. We are actively improving our service and we aim to keep membership cost as low as we can. As the only medical ID provider to employ medical professionals, one of our priorities is the proper understanding of all medical conditions, including rare disorders. We would be happy to hear more about your concerns via info@medicalert.org.uk to see if we can find a way to resolve your issues. Amelia, MedicAlert UK

"Every Single Time..." My Experiences
I have used Medic Alert for about 30 years.... Not once has it failed me - and every single time it has needed to be used it has been invaluable.... It has not failed me once Over the last few years I have had to change my details a great deal - and it has always happened within a couple of days.... So I have felt safe and happy; I know that the right information will go out..... That makes family, loved ones and the GP a lot more rested Each time I have needed to make changes it has been so swift; so it has been an enormous help... Thank You Medic Alert

Medic Alert has proved itself an invaluable service in helping paramedics assess and understand my health issues when I've been unconscious, consequently saving my life having my Medic Alert information to hand during such medical emergencies. Additionally, I would like to compliment the phone operatives at Medic Alert who provide excellent customer services when I've needed to call them to update my circumstances, keep up the good works :)

Quality gone down hill
I love Medic Alert and have been wearing one for over 20 years now. Unfortunatly, i have found thet the build quality has gone down hill. having had a Bracelet for 15 years i brought a new one feeling it was time to have one without all the scratches on. When i got my new one i saw that it had a new type of clasp, one that is much easier to come undone. I have had to buy 5 new Bracelets in five years because the clasp dosen't stay locked and the Bracelet falls off. Why did you change from a clasp that was imposible to remove unless you did it yourself to one that opens when it gets caught on a thread from my jumper?

My membership (of around 30 years' standing) has just renewed, and this is the first time I've updated my own record via the website - this is so, so much more straightforward than crossing things out on - or adding things to - the print-out that generally arrives in the mail, and then posting it back, and then kicking myself for omitting or misspelling something! What a difference! Nice to hear that the new wallet card is a plastic one, and I'm looking forward to receiving it. Thanks, MedicAlert, for the decades of peace of mind and more of the same in the future!

The overall customer services and support is brilliant, as the teams are very competent.  I had a number of issues before and after the order was place and I was helped by an agent called Nigel who provided nothing less than a 5* service to get everything resolved, and update me.  I really appreciated his help and patience - a real credit to Medic Alert.

MedicAlert is my lifeline in case of an emergency. My family has the peace of mind to know that if anything was to happen to me, I will be in good hands and they would find out immediately. I do enjoy life better knowing that I have this protection and reassurance. Thank you MedicAlert!

Have just come off the phone to a lovely, very helpful young lady who helped me through the process of becoming a Medic Alert member and ordering my bracelet. I found the website difficult to navigate and slow to respond. Keying in medical information was impossible as it wouldn't allow me to type anything in. Also, the payment page wouldn't allow me to pay!! However, with the help of my "Medic Alert friend" we managed it in the end! Thank you! I look forward to receiving my bracelet.
Thank you for your feedback. We're very sorry to hear that you experienced some issues with our website but we're glad to hear that our Member Support Team were able to get everything sorted for you over the phone. If you need anything else, please do give the team a call again! Welcome to MedicAlert!

A big thank you to Zoe C. for all her help in sorting out my sign in problems. She was quick efficient and most importantly friendly and polite. I was able to update my details within minutes once my sign in was re-enabled; always a relief and reassuring that should contact by medical professionals be required that the information held is accurate, correct and up to date. Thanks again Zoe.

Ordered bracelet for my son on 24/01/2019 still not received it,rang three times about this item and been told that it must be lost in system,rang again today and been told its lost in system yet again .my son has life threatening illness and desperately needs his medic alert as his broke, school threatening to send him home until he has one.not very good medic alert considering he has had them since birth ,he is 17 years old.we are paying for a membership and bracelet that we don't have .
We’re awfully sorry about your son’s bracelet and understand your frustrations and concerns. We got this order fast tracked and dispatched last week and one of our Membership Service Advisors would have called you. Once again, we’re sorry for your experience with us. We hope this is now resolved for you.

MedicAlert UK is so important and saves so many lives, dad wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for his disc and the amazing medical staff, police, fire crews and the air ambulance. Our son is registered with you because he has multiple drug allergies and also has a disc.

I have to give the gold bracelet a 5* rating as it is lovely and people compliment me on it. I am particularly happy now that there is the option of putting on a safety chain. When I ordered my previous gold bracelet I asked about a safety chain, because I had had a problem with the clasp unfastening, only to be told that you don't supply safety chains because the clasps are strong enough. The local jeweller wouldn't put one on because it was a MedicAlert bracelet! So I was horrified when I discovered, about a month ago that my expensive solid gold bracelet was no longer on my wrist. And that is why I have just spent another £300+ on a new bracelet - With a safety chain!!! Your comments are welcome!!
Thank you for your comment and I'm really sorry to hear you lost your 1st Gold bracelet. Our clasps are very strong, however we always welcome member's ideas, so it is likely due to your suggestion that we have since introduced the safety chain as an option to add onto their gold or silver bracelets, so thank you for providing us that useful feedback. As it was only a month or so ago, I can only hope that the person who found your 1st bracelet will eventually post it in to us! And if they do, we will be in contact to reunite you with it. If you have any questions, or have any other suggestions please feel free to drop us an email on marketing@medicalert.org.uk

I love my new medic alert bracelet, however, I feel the membership should be optional not compulsory!!!!
Thank you for your comment Sarah, and I understand why you might feel like this. However, we feel that there is so much more to MedicAlert than just our jewellery. A disc's engraving can only give you so much information due to limited space, when there is always so much more to know about an individual, especially in an emergency situation when every moment matters. Each ID disc carries our emergency phoneline which enables paramedics or A&E staff to access further information. This extra info is often so crucial to an optimal recovery. It will also speeding up any contact with your next-of-kin so they are aware of what's happened, and where they need to go to be there for you. These are just some of the ways how your membership can support you, but we are more than happy to answer any further questions you might have. Feel free to reach us at marketing@medicalert.org.uk.

I have worn a Medicalert bracelet for nearly my entire life - since I was diagnosed as severely penicillin allergic at the age of 3.  Over the years a couple of other conditions have been added, and when I moved from Canada to the UK, I became a member here with new bracelets and carried on.  I so appreciate the peace of mind that comes from having the ID on me at all times as well as the wallet card.  Over the years I've purchased a couple of different chains and discs as they started to create dressier styles.Most recently a link broke on my 16yo gold figaro chain.  For a nominal fee Medicalert repaired the chain and I had it back in less than a week!  At the same time I purchsed the new 'wheat chain' stainless steel bracelet as I prefer white metals, but cannot wear sterling silver as my skin badly tarnishes it.   I was so pleased to see a dressier chain on a stainless bracelet.

Jewellery is very good quality, nice thick chain.  I often cannot wear silver, but this one seems to be fine!  Price seemed high, but as soon as I saw the thickness of the necklace, I know think the price was fair.  Small price to pay for such peace of mind

The Medic Alert Team are true professionals. From help with wording on the discs to problems with digital engraving, they have exceeded my expectations and removed any potential stressful issues. It's a huge relief to have their professional backup when one is already overwhelmed by health issues.

I've worn a MedicAlert bracelet non-stop for over 14 years now and I've just decided to replace it as the metal is starting to get a little bit worn in places. One of the reasons for replacing it was the peace of mind it gives me and my family - it's kind of a back-up friend who is there should I need help. I chose the Byzantine bracelet and I'm delighted with it. Thank you everything you give me MedicAlert, above and beyond a piece of jewellery.

Phoned the helpline this afternoon to change my details what a wonderful professional service this is. Was assisted by a very helpful young man who was efficient and knowledgeable even though my condition was very rare he coped with the complications. Then I was put through to a nurse who was extremely helpful and who sorted everything else out for me. So reassuring to have this service my experience reduced my anxiety levels no end. Thank you

On 14th March I called Medic Alert as my bracelet which I hadn’t had very long seemed to have fallen into pieces. I was asked to return the bracelet which I did and was informed a replacement would be sent. As I had not received a replacement I called this week and spoke to Richard who informed me that my broken one had not been received and he responded with a resolution immediately confirming a replacement would be sent promptly. In an age where customer service seems to have been ignored in the scramble to make profit it was refreshing to deal with an organisation which clearly place customer service as a number one priority . Many thanks again for your assistance in ensuring my query was handled with such excellent professionalism.

I’ve had mine since the 1980s when it was begun by The Lions, a British Charity fund raising Association. It’s a great security asset, as I have several ‘Hidden Problems/ Disabilities’ it makes living a full life a lot easier. My uncle was a member of the Lions when I first became a member, which is how I first heard of you, and I well remember walking into my GPS surgery with a stack of Medic Alert leaflets, nearly 73 now and come through 4 heart operations. So much gratitude for your back up

Following a visit to Belfast City Hospital, the Haematology Dept staff were delighted to see I was wearing my MedicAlert ID bracelet which they said was an invaluable way for them to check on vital information in a number of different scenarios, most usefully when patients can't speak for themselves. Good awareness out there amongst medical staff that this service can help to save lives and deliver the right treatment rapidly.

I have been looking at the silver clip on disc for a while, as I have a lovely silver bracelet from Tiffany, and thought it would make a nice addition. It looks great and It can also be used on a necklace. I feel very well protected now, and get to wear my bracelet a lot more which is a bonus. I expected it to take the ten days they quote, but it came after three, I was very impressed. Thank you.
