Back To School!

Save 10% on MedicAlert membership and jewellery with code BTS2019

Once again, summer has flown by and it’s almost time for our kids to head back to school.

We know this can be a stressful time for families all over the UK - from organising textbooks and packing newly-bought backpacks, to last-minute realisations that the shoes bought in June are already too small, there is so much to think about. This is especially true if it’s your child's first year in school or the year they step up to “big school”!

If your child is living with a medical condition, it can be even more stressful. They may have an allergy puts them at risk of an anaphylactic reaction, diabetes that needs to be managed and monitored, epilepsy or a heart condition that teachers need to be aware of. As a parent, you want to keep your child safe but you cannot be there, speaking for them, all the time.

As a charity, MedicAlert’s ID service speaks for our members when they cannot - our engraved medical ID jewellery provides the most vital medical information to aid initial care decisions, whilst the member's full medical record is available 24/7 via our emergency line when required.

Our young members can have multiple advocates, such as parents or grandparents, to help manage their record, allowing you to keep their information up-to-date. We have a team of in-house registered nurses who check all member records when they are set-up and updated, to ensure that all information is accurate and medically sound for use in an emergency.

To provide peace of mind that your child is safe, whether they are in the classroom, at a club or on a school trip, we’re offering a BACK TO SCHOOL discount: use code BTS2019 for 10% off membership and medical ID jewellery. Simply enter the code online at checkout or quote it by phone on 01908 951045.

Grace

Grace

“MedicAlert supports her in feeling safe as she gains more independence and gets older. We want her to live her life as normal as possible and we encourage her not to feel different.” - Grace’s mum

Grace had her first allergic reaction when she was just a few weeks old. Her parents decided to join MedicAlert and purchased two MedicAlert bracelets for Grace when she was in nursery. She is now 8 years old and, when she saw on TV the tragic news of a boy sadly losing his life as the medics didn’t know of his allergies, she asked for a new MedicAlert bracelet.



Lucy


Lucy

“With me, it’s completely invisible… you’d never be able to tell that I have a disability. The MedicAlert bracelet could save my life one day.” - Lucy Dodd

Diagnosed as a baby with Diamond-Blackfan Anaemia - a rare blood condition that inhibits the production of red blood cells - Lucy has blood transfusions every three weeks to manage her condition.

Going away to university, Lucy and her family were reassured that should the worst happen and she’s unable to communicate, MedicAlert will relay her vital medical information to emergency responders.
