Medical Information Card

The Welsh Ambulance Service has made a Medical Information Card for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The card will help you give important information to paramedics and other emergency service staff if there is an accident or emergency.

You will need to fill in as many details as you can on the card and keep it with you at all times.

Remember to give the card to the emergency service staff when they arrive.

The information on the card will have your name, any medical problems and allergies and any medication you take.

(If you fill in the Welsh side of the card please fill in the English side too as the paramedic who helps you may not be able to read Welsh)

To get a card please e-mail ppi.team@wales.nhs.uk, make sure you give your name, address and postcode.  We will then send you a Medical Information Card.
