MedicAlert is a global charity that provides medical ID jewellery for people with hidden medical conditions or allergies. Situated on the pulse points, it displays the international medical symbol to quickly identify your condition and speed up treatment in an emergency. Because every moment matters.
MedicAlert members benefit from peace of mind that goes far beyond their bracelet. Their conditions are reviewed by medically trained staff, who prioritise the text engraved on each piece of jewellery. A detailed medical record is also held in MedicAlert's secure database, which can be accessed 24/7 by emergency responders.
Every year in the UK, nearly a million children struggle with wetting or soiling problems, but the very nature of the issue means it is often hidden and not talked about. Feeling unable to discuss what is happening, families often think they are the only ones coping day in and day out with the effects of a child with a wetting or soiling condition. ERIC is dedicated to raising awareness and reducing the stigma of these problems and we offer information and support to help families manage or overcome them.
