After last week’s blog about my disastrous journey home from London, it seems an opportune time to share this new thing I’ve found on my smartphone……..
Those of you who have a iPhone all probably already aware, but just in case its bypassed you like it did me I thought I’d share this info.
Did you know that in an emergency, people are able to access any information you’re willing to share about your medical history and next of kin contact details without the need to be able to unlock your phone? It would be really good for anyone that gets lost and ends up with a smiley person trying to help……….
At the bottom left of the log in screen is the ‘Emergency’ button – click this
Then select ‘Medical ID’ from the bottom left of the screen.
It has everything you wish to share including the ability to enter next of kin telephone numbers as well as all your medical details.
I thought this would be really useful if you get lost and confused as well. Maybe other phones have the ability to do something similar.
As I said, I’m probably the last to realise this – although I didn’t realise it at all as Gemma and Sarah told me and helped me to complete. I know it relies on us remembering to take our phone out with us, but anything is better than nothing……
