Carers First – Kent Carers’ Emergency Card

,

One of the main concerns that carers tell us they have, is when leaving the person they look after, what would happen if they were taken ill or involved in an accident.

Carers are issued with a credit card sized card. The carer carries it at all times, so that it can be used as an instant source of identification in case of accident or sudden illness.

The card does not have any personal details on it, only a unique registration number and the telephone number of the central help line.
In an emergency situation anyone can telephone the number on the card and quote the unique registration number printed on the card. The contact centre uses the registration number to easily access the carers pre-arranged emergency plan and puts it into action.

This is a free service.

Opening Hours Monday-Sunday 24 hours Address Michael Gill Building, Tolgate Lane, Strood, Kent | ME2 4TG Phone 0300 303 1555
