As there are so many people with different medical conditions especially those that are advised to carry a Medical Alert with them CAG thought this would be of use to our users.

 

Please bear in mind that Team at CAG has spent some time designing this Medical Alert Wallet card Template for your use completely FREE.

 

 

Before Printing please check your printer settings:

 

Page Scaling / Handling / Sizing Setting

 

Ensure your printer is NOT set to - "Expand to fill Printable Area" (If you leave it on this it will print out as an A4 Page which you dont want)

 

Ensure the Page Scaling / Handling / Setting is set to - NONE / Acutal Size (Check your printer properties before printing as each printers settings are different)

 

To Fill in Form

 

To fill in the Form rather that trying to fill it in upside down just go to your PDF Programs VIEW setting and simply "Rotate Page Clockwise" until it is at the correct level and complete.

I had created one very similar to this but had the function to add a photograph this would then set it up nicely, just in case the card was in the OH purse then it could cause issues, think of it as a safety issue, with the attachment of a photo then there will be no issue in regards to anyone giving assistance, including the medical team dealing, as they will see who the are looking at. An added precautionary feature

 

 

Good job though well laid out

Just looking at medic-alert type things now. I've decided to go for the bracelet as it's easiest to access for medics. Also metal i.e. stainless steel - to make it reasonably fire proof. However, All I'm going to put on it is how to get the info, not the info itself. The info is on a web site - so globally accessible and easy for me to keep completely up to date.

 

To access the info, they'll be instructed to e-mail me using a 'password' in the subject line to trigger an auto reply containing the link to the web page. The auto process will also only respond to certain e-addresses such as *.nhs.uk and *.nhs.net - so that the location isn't given to just anyone.

 

Mike.

Thanks for this. Ideal for carrying in wallet. Would be great if we could save the card completed but then only change the parts which may need changing regularly like current medication. I can understand the need to protect the file but it can be a bit time consuming having to re-enter every piece of information just to remove/add 1 item of medication. Still a great idea though.:-)

Out of interest. Which software was used to create the Medical Alert Wallet Card. I'd be interested to maybe try creating my own. May even try with photoshop, at least I can save various parts as layers in pds file. Regards.

If you actually take the time to read post#1 the instructions on how to save are there, read from the WARNING onwards.

FYI. If that statement was meant for me then please do not be patronising. I read all the above and understand that you have to save the pdf under a different filename. I was just saying that it would be better if we didn't have to enter each piece of information every time we had to update the card. Being a quite recently diagnosed diabetic, who has been in hospital quite frequently for surgery and infections my medication has been, and probably will continue to be, changed quite often ie. Insulin doseage. It is therefore quite tedious having to re-enter every piece of information just to ammend, for example an insulin dose from 30 units to 40 units.

I see nothing Patronising in my response.

 

Your post#4 and I quote this part of that post:

 

I can understand the need to protect the file but it can be a bit time consuming having to re-enter every piece of information just to remove/add 1 item of medication.

 

The Protection is there as this is CAGs work freely available to download and use. (No the protection will not be removed)

 

As for a bit time consuming having to re-enter everything, that is why I mentioned what I did in post#6 which you seem to have taken offence at. If you had followed the instructions in that post you would have no need to keep having to re-enter everything.

The way I pick it up from your message in post 6 if I save the file with a new filename then I should be able to edit that file. Unfortunately, when the file is saved under a new file name it is also saved with all protection still in place therefore, the newly saved document, cannot be edited. Hence the need to re-enter all data again. Like I said a great and useful idea, which in my case, in the long run I'll probably return to once meds are all settled and not changing every fortnight or so.

I have just tested this by using open from the website then using save as. I have then been able to go into the document multiple times and making small changes and saving between each, creating a new version of the program. As it is a PDF, I am using Acrobat Reader DC to update the file.
