We have just collected our JIC (Just in case kit) from our GP, medications to go in it will be ready this afternoon. Very impressed - thank you MNDA.:)

We have the medication, the problem is the box is not big enough to hold them. Great idea, very good advice, but a larger box is needed please.

What happened with us was our specialist nurse contacted our GP saying could she supply a JIC kit? The GP contacted the MNDA who supplied the box and instructions and today we went to see the GP who gave us the box and prescriptions for the medication to go in it. The next step is for the nurse to come and explain to us how and when everything is used. This is very good support from everyone concerned.

Just in case kit. The box has two compartments, one for the carer and one for a doctor or nurse. The carers box contains medication you can give to help with choking and distress. The other one has medications which can only be administrated by a doctor, mostly by injection. The idea is if a doctor is called out he may not have the correct medication with him, especially in the case of a out of hours doctor. The box also contains instructions about how and when to administer the medication, a nurse has to go through this with you. It's a great idea and well worth having, the only problem is the box is not big enough.

Thanks for your comments about the Just in Case Kit. We in the process of reviewing this resource and gathering as much information as possible about how the Just in Case Kit can be improved. We’ve had a number of comments now that the box isn’t big enough, so this is definitely something we’re looking to change. If you have any other feedback we’d be really keen to hear from you. Can you please contact beverley.goodman@mndassociation.org Thanks Claire

Hi;

The "Just in Case" leaflet is up for review so if you think it could be done better or have less or more info on it please help by posting here.

It's again something that I know little about.

Regards Terry

PS:- Trevor, I have your point about the box size.
