Jonathan Djanogly MP backs powerful new mechanism for improving our health and care services


26th June 2014

Jonathan Djanogly has welcomed the launch of a new scheme designed to revolutionise care delivery in Cambridgeshire.

The Cambridgeshire Care Card trial is a local test project for a national programme aimed at people over sixty and particularly holders of Bus Passes. The trial involves using the bus pass to do much more than just allow free public transport. The trial will add a variety of functions so that the card holder can use more public services.

Bus pass holders will be able to add personal information to the card, meaning that in the event of a medical emergency the card may be read by paramedics and they will know what the patient’s blood group is and whether they have any allergies or long term conditions, what medication they are taking and so on. To be able to carry this kind of information in a secure and convenient form may be life saving.

Jonathan Djanogly commented:

“I was very pleased to meet recently with the designers and promoters of this project. This is an excellent scheme with great prospects for improving the delivery of care services. The advantage of this scheme is that any holder of a bus pass may choose to upgrade it to add a series of data fields and applications that will allow the same card to be used for many new services. I recommend that people view camcarecard.com for further information.”
