Message in a Bottle

Message in a BottleThe Lions Message in a Bottle scheme is a simple idea designed to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details  on a standard form and in a common location - the fridge so that if the emergency services are called out to your home they can find useful information on your medication and who to contact for you in case of an emergency. This can save vital minutes in getting you or your loved one the right treatment. Whilst it is focused on vulnerable people in our community, anyone can have an accident at home, so this scheme can benefit anyone, including you.  Simply complete the details on the form, put it in the bottle and place in the door compartment of your fridge. The Emergency Services will know to look for it in the event of being called to your home as they will be alerted by the two special Green Emergency/Green Cross stickers on the fridge door and inside your front door.

 Bottles are free of charge and are available throughout Shirley at the following locations 

Shirley Community Centre Stratford Road, Shirley Clinic Stratford Road, The Park Surgery, Shirley Methodist Church, The Bridge Church, Grafton Road Medical Centre, Shirley Medical Centre Union Road, Dickens Heath Medical Centre, Jacey Practice, Northbrook Practice, Northbrook Pharmacy, Tanworth Lane Medical Centre, Monkspath Medical Centre, Haslucks Green Surgery or from your District Nurse.
