Did you know about this invaluable feature on your smart device?

Most modern smart phones are equipped to not only provide you with an excellent source of entertainment, but they could help you in an emergency if you're found unconscious or unable to communicate. 

Medical ID is feature that can help a first responder identify your critical medical information from your device's lock screen, without the need of unlocking your phone.

Just by tapping on 'emergency call', first responders can then find crucial medical information such as allergies and/or medical conditions which could assist in a patient's treatment. 

Setting up your Medical ID is easy. You can find our guide on how to set it up on your device here

Before setting up your Medical ID on your device, it is important to consider that should your phone ever be stolen or lost, that information may be accessible by another individual.

St John WA recommends that users be mindful of what medical information they share when using this feature.
