VIP cards launched for people with learning disabilities

3rd September 2009

The former primary care trust, North East Lincolnshire Care Trust Plus, has launched vulnerable in patient (VIP) cards to enable people with learning disabilities to carry their important medical information with them.

People with learning disabilities will be able to record their personal details on the card, such as problems taking medication, allergies, how they show pain and their reaction to needles. The VIP card will give doctors, nurses, dentists and other health workers the information needed to give them the right support.
