Message in a Bottle

Message in a Bottle – when time is saved, lives are saved.

Do you know of the free Message in a Bottle scheme, promoted by the local Lions group?

The Lions Message in a Bottle is a simple idea that encourages people to keep their basic personal and medical details in a common place where they can easily be found in an emergency.

How does it work?

The information is kept in a small plastic bottle which is then stored in your fridge, where the emergency services would expect to find it in the event of being called to your home. They will know you have a bottle by two labels. One is fixed on the inside of the front door or the main entrance to your home, and the other to the door of your fridge.

To obtain a bottle, ask at Hodnet Medical Centre or phone Hodnet Compassionate Communities: 07849 835687

If there is more than one person in the household, a separate form should be used for each individual. Please ask for an additional form if you need one.

(Note: users of Medic Alert products should continue to wear these as normal. The Message in a Bottle is not intended to replace these items.)
