The MedicAlert Foundation
An informal link has been made between LUPUS UK and MedicAlert Foundation and set out below are brief details of their services.
WHAT IS THE MEDICALERT FOUNDATION?
MedicAlert is the only non-profit making registered charity providing a life-saving identification system for individuals with hidden medical conditions and allergies. This takes the form of body-worn bracelets or necklets (known as MedicAlert Emblems) bearing the MedicAlert symbol on the disc and supported by a 24 hour emergency telephone service. Each member receives an Emblem that is engraved with the wearer's main medical condition(s) or vital details, a personal ID number and a 24 hour emergency telephone number that can access their details from anywhere in the world in over 100 languages.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN?
There is an annual fee of £25 for membership and the member pays for whichever Emblem they choose from a wide range including bracelets, necklets, sports bands and watches, starting at £19.95. As a registered charity, MedicAlert can also provide free or subsidised membership to individuals on a limited income.
