I'm also on several medication tablets and have some severe allergies. I got a copyof prescription from GP - and get a new one if anything changes - and keep it in my wallet or with driving licence and car insurance paper in my bag.

There are several types of necklets, pendants, etc from SOS or Medicalert as well.

Hi Mavis, got copies in my caravan, car and at home as well as in wallet, don't always remeber my wallet as the missus looks after the pennies, must ask her if I still have a bank card, lol!

I tried the necklets and a pendant but unfortunately I get a rash whenever I wear any type of these, no matter what metal they are made from so not good for me.

All great ideas being added and certainly some great advice on this thread, really pleased I started this one now!

For medication keep the list of drugs on your repeat prescriptio with you, in your wallet or purse etc. Update it when you change a medication. We're not normally that worried about the dose, just what you are on. The majority of us can get a good idea of your conditions from the meds you are taking.

There are a few ID type things that you may want to carry:


OK but not many services have on board laptops yet, fine for at hospital but not really as a first port of call for us who get there first!


Seen a few of these, can draw our attention to certain conditions.


I like these, I have one on my running shoes as I never carry ID when I'm running.

Thanks Carperjake, the bracelets i have seen before but as said allergies permit me from wearing.

I do like the one for the trainers, not seen them before, where did you get them from?

You may have heard of my main condition which was diagnosed about in 2005. Its Buergers disease, aside from that I have a few other long term problems, BP is taken on my left leg which some nurses and paramedics still find very unusual. Not a great blood flow to my arms and the hope was to do a bypass op but as yet I am not fit enough to go through that. Hopefully one day!


Started a thing on my website about my health, needs updating again now but will get to it, the rest of the website is keeping me busy as well as helping out on ukcampsite.co.uk when I am able.

Have to add that my GP is brilliant, he really has tried to do the best for me and is constantly checking up with a GP chum of his in America wher the disease is better known about.

Have a look HERE they do loads of different options for medical ID tags.

I've heard of Buergers but never seen it, sounds horrible.

I've  been using ICE ever since I started carrying a mobile phone....I have also pushed for people to do this....my kids all have it and now do so many of their friends....nobody wants to get that call but at least with ICE you will get it and hopefully in time to do some good.

Nice to see some more info on it.....I'll be printing some details off and pinning them up at work

Just thought I'd add to this.

Many phones now have an ICE section for you to add details. This can normally be accessed without the phoned being unlocked first. A couple of suggestions I received from my father (a retired paramedic) was to:
1. Complete the phones emergency contact settings
2. Save partners number in phone as either husband or wife - this makes it easy for responders to identify
3. If your phone has a fingerprint lock. Set it up, this may enable emergency services to unlock the phone
4. Carry details with you. A recent example I have seen for this is a company called IceCard, they do varying alert cards, key rings etc. http://www.icecard.co.uk
