We have taken up the Charity MediPAL® card scheme which enables you to receive the card at a discounted price and Thyroid UK to receive a donation for each card sold.
The MediPAL ID card is a distinctive, credit-card-sized card made from hard-wearing plastic. It displays your medical details as well as your name and a contact telephone number. MediPAL is easily recognisable with a red cross on the card which you carry in your wallet or purse at all times and can be used as an Emergency ID Card or an Emergency Contact Card. All 31 UK ambulance trusts are aware of the service.
The MediPAL® card shows:
• A distinctive Green Cross
• Emergency contact details
• Current Medication
• Medical history (including allergies)
• Blood group
• GP Details
The card is available for a one off payment of £11.99, there is no delivery charge and this price includes two text changes during the life of the card.
The normal cost to purchase a card is £14.99, but everyone who asks for a Thyroid UK application form will only pay a one off payment of £11.99. This price includes two text changes during the life of the card.
To purchase a card at the special price of £11.99, you need to contact MediPAL on
0845 603 4604 and ask for a Thyroid UK application form.
For every card purchased this way, Thyroid UK will receive a donation to our funds
