“Can’t wait” / Medic Alert card

By now, registered (paid up members) should have received the latest (Summer 2021) edition of our ROAR! magazine which contains our widely anticipated “Can’t Wait”/Medic alert card!

Hope you have received yours and will find it useful. You may have noticed that the “Medic Alert” side includes a QR code, which is a short cut to the medic alert information on our website.

Take a look as it contains a wealth of useful information for pouchees and medics.


How to use a QR code

Many of you will have become familiar with QR codes (if you weren’t already!) due to COVID and the requirement to check-in at many locations.

Depending on your smart phone, you may be able to access the web page by simply opening the camera on your phone and pointing at the image. Give it a try. You can try it here if you don’t have the card yet.

If that doesn’t work, then you may need to download a FREE QR code reader from the App store or Google Play. Search in the App store for QR Code or QR Reader or similar and you will find many free apps!

Failing that, you can always access the same information by going to pouchsupport.org/medic


Gabriela Pouchou recording and slides now available.

Last week’s webcast by Gabriela Pouchou, Dietician St. Mark’s Hospital, on the subject “Healthy eating for Patients with an Internal Pouch” is now available on the Red Lion Group’s YouTube channel.

This was a fascinating and helpful webcast, followed by an interesting Q&A session. If you missed out, or wish to view it again, you can see it here.

Gabriela has also kindly shared her PowerPoint slides with us, which you can find on the resources section of our website. see pouchsupport.org/resources
