IN CASE OF SICKNESS (ICOS):

A form to save long involved explanations in event of emergency hospitalisation and to provide a full and up to date medical history for medical professionals. If you are unconscious it will assist those treating you in carrying on with your usual medication and ensuring that what they give you does not clash with your current medication. Keep the form in your handbag or wallet.
