Shunt Alert Cards

Shine has a series of Shunt Alert Cards, for adults and children. These should be carried at all times by anyone with hydrocephalus who is treated by a shunt (this will include some people with spina bifida).

The card emphasises that, if the cardholder is showing signs similar to those which occur when there is shunt blockage or infection, urgent assessment of shunt function should be carried out in a specialist neuro-surgical unit, in order to eliminate shunt failure as a cause.

Shunt alert cards are free to order from Shine, request yours by calling 01733 555988, emailing firstcontact@shinecharity.org.uk or order online now by completing the form below.

You can also download the cards which you can complete online and save to your mobile phone or device.  Choose from the options below to download your digital shunt alert card.
