    This is a brilliant idea that would stop the constant worry of carrying paper prescriptions, in case of illness or accident whilst away home or abroad.

    I have been looking for a medical ID which would meet my needs as a solo traveller - and this seems to fit the bill. My consultant has advised me to wear/take one with me at all times as I have a pituitary problem and need to take steroids for the rest of my life. It is essential that in the case of accidents/collapse medical staff need to know this fact before administering any other medication.

    I travel quite often, with a plethora of medication. This would be so helpful and reduce stress levels when going through security at the airport.

    What a wonderful idea and so simple for the owner to use.
    Well thought out.

    One of these would be very useful. I have a neural stimulator, which involves electrodes fixed to my spine controlled by a pacemaker battery in my abdomen, all to manage severe sciatic pain following back surgery. In addition I take medication for high blood pressure and am prescribed painkillers for periods when my pain levels are high. My husband also takes blood pressure medication and we like to travel. I often feel very panicky in airports due to all my wiring and am frequently taken into a cubicle with female security officers so anything to ease the process would be most welcome.

    MediPAL is a wonderful idea and would be particularly useful to me because I have allergies to many medications which are commonly used in an accident. I am unlucky enough to be allergic to pain killers from Paracetamol to aspirin, to all of them tried so far including Indocid, distalgesic, Nurofen etc. Plus I am also allergic to antibiotics too - I have reacted to 4 different types of antibiotics from Penicillen to Trimethoprin etc, so I do not take painkillers any more and have not tried antibiotics for many years. I also have food allergies and intolerances, plus an eye disease which is controlled with steroids (luckily I can still take these!).

    A scheme like this would give me and my family peace of mind when travelling in the UK or abroad, as I always hope I will be conscious or have someone with me to say no painkillers or antibiotics please whatever the emergency.

    Brilliant idea. How really useful, covers all sorts of circumstances. Allows medical staff to know at a glance the persons medical conditions and required medication. Whether the person is unconscious or unable to speak the local language. This gives piece of mind for the person and their family and friends. Excellent.

    A card for my husband would be a gift for me. It takes up so little room to pack - far less than the medications - and will be just as essential. Priceless for peace of mind. A definite upgrade to my packing list.

    This would be a godsend when travelling at home or abroad, it's always a great worry as I take so many types of medication.
