St John is working together with ACC and HQSC to reduce the risk of falls. You can play a pivotal role in working with us to assess those at risk in our communities and provide them with information that helps them reduce their risk of falling.

Below you'll find links to information and checklists you may find useful. Please also complete the form below so we can up date you when any new resources or products are available that may be of benefit to you and your patients.

Sending a St John Medical Alarm service referral

The most efficient way for you to refer your patients for a St John Medical Alarm is to complete the easy to use, self-populating e-referral form via Healthlink. If you haven’t used the e-referral form before or want refresher training please contact your local St John Healthcare Representative. Alternatively you can look at one of the Quick Start Guides below.

If you’d prefer to fax, email or post the referral to us please use this St John Medical Alarm referral form. You can also call our Medical Alarm team on 0800 50 23 23.

St John Let's Work Together

Based on our 'Let's Work Together' presentation we have developed a range of checklists and information to use with your patients. If you have any questions please contact your local St John Healthcare Representative.
