Helping your patient to get a St John Medical Alarm.

Falls are the single largest cause of injury for New Zealanders and the second most common reason for phoning 111 for an ambulance. Every year in New Zealand, 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will fall. For those over the age of 80 the rate increases to 1 in 2 *. Often the amount of time it takes to get help determines how quickly people recover from a fall.

With more certainty around timely access to help in any emergency, St John Medical Alarms can offer older patients, and those with a physical disability or health condition the confidence they need to maintain their independence

As a GP, we understand the important role you play in helping at-risk patients to get access to a medical alarm, especially if they are seeking Government funding.
