    The topic of accessing emergency contact details was raised at the AGM.
    In addition to the recommendation of carrying them on a card in a rucksack, here is a reminder of how to hold them on your phone in a way they can be accessed by someone else:

    To set this up on an iPhone:
    Find the Health app that will normally already exist on your iPhone. Open the app and select *Medical ID from the menu at the bottom of the screen. Add in emergency contact details here plus any medical conditions that you would like someone to know about in case of an emergency. Save this information to store it.

    To use in an emergency
    On the home screen, without having to enter a PIN, select ‘Emergency’ at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to a screen with a keypad to call emergency services, but also shows *Medical ID at the bottom. Selecting this will take you to the details that you set up above allowing someone to call them if necessary.

    This can also be set up on an Android by:
    Settings > Users > Emergency Information

    On my Android (Motorola moto g6 play) it’s under Settings > System > About phone

    Using in an Emergency you have to swipe up to get a keypad, then tap on Emergency, then (twice) on Emergency Information the top, which gives two tabs, one with your address, blood group, allergies etc., and one with your ICE contacts.

    Isn’t it wonderful that these systems are so well standardised.
