Medical Device Awareness Card live launch on 13 February 2019
Feb 5, 2019 —
Further to my recent announcement, we are delighted that the Medical Device Awareness Card will be launched on 13 February 2019. On this date, I will issue a link to the card so that users can download and print it ready for use.
All UK airports are aware of the card, which has information on one side for Security Officers and for the passenger on the other. It has full backing from the UK government and holds both the CAA and AOA logos.
I am delighted with this practical and highly effective scheme. It is a tangible solution that will remove any confusion or uncertainty at airport security. After our harrowing experience 3 years ago when my family were held in an airport police room due to my son’s insulin pump, it goes without saying that this campaign has been highly personal to me. I am absolutely thrilled that the CAA have worked so hard with us on this project, which affects thousands of travellers each year.
However, my work is not yet done, my aim now is to roll out the scheme globally with overseas organisations to achieve my ultimate goal of all insulin pump users having a stress free and safe experience at airport security around the world. Watch this space ….
