MediPal Medical ID Cards

 

MediPal Medical ID Cards

 

 

The MediPAL ID card is designed for anyone who takes medications and/or has a medical history. It is a hardwearing waterproof plastic card displaying clearly an emergency contact, medication details and medical history, which can be kept in a wallet or purse or held in a clear plastic wallet on a lanyard.

Thyroid UK members would benefit from carrying a MediPAL card, in case of an emergency, where details need to be found quickly, especially if they are taking medications that are not listed in their NHS medical records. No need for unsightly bracelets or jewellery – all medical details are clearly displayed on the card. MediPAL cards can also be translated into most foreign languages.

Medipal work extensively with a number of organisations and charities and feel that this would be an opportunity for Thyroid UK members to have peace of mind.

The cost of the MediPAL card is £7.99 and gives you a lifelong membership, meaning that any time you need to update your card i.e. if you change medications, the cost is £5.99 rather than start from scratch.

The MediPAL® card shows:

  • A distinctive Green Cross
  • Name
  • DOB
  • Emergency contact details
  • Current Medication
  • Medical history (including allergies)
  • Blood group
  • GP Details
