Next of Kin
Some TTP Patients say it causes anxiety to think that they might not be able to communicate about their condition if they become unwell or have an accident.
Next of Kin are a long established organisation that operates an ‘emergency service’ for anyone, but can be particularly useful for people with medical conditions.
It works by registering your details with www.nextofkin.com and making sure you keep your special tag, card or stickers on you or visible in windows. In the event of an accident or emergency, dedicated operators will make a quick security check with the caller to make sure the call is a genuine call from the Police, Medic or Embassy and then we will pass your nominated Next of Kin details. The phone number on the card also includes the code for calling from abroad so you can take it on holiday or business travel. The Tags are also useful for children in case they get lost.
TTPNetwork has negotiated a special rate for any member of TTPNetwork (i.e. members of this page) If you sign up via www.nextofkin.com using the code TTP50. Using the code gives group members 50% off the price of the membership pack which is usually £29.99. (the operator service is charged at £2 per month or £15 per year when you activate your membership).
You may share this code with your Friends and Family.
