Medical alert Bracelets

Last reply: 8 months ago

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has bought or had a bracelet made up to alert medical teams. I would like to get something as following node removal, my right arm is now compromised and should never be used for blood pressure or for taking bloods etc...Thanks

Hi Niamh,

Thank you for posting on the Online Community.

Medical alert bracelets are an excellent way to alert medics of health related concerns. Many home medical supply shops and online stores stock a variety of these bracelets. Hopefully you will hear from others who can advise which type of bracelets they preferred.

If you would like to speak with a cancer nurse please contact our Support Line on 1800 200 700, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.

Kind regards,

Cancer Nurse
