Health cards – yours and the children’s
If you don’t normally carry these in your wallet, do so now, if you can safely.
Even if you have the health cards with you, make photocopies of them and keep them in one of the safe places we have suggested. This will be helpful if your partner takes your wallet or you have to flee without it.

Drug card/partner’s workplace health benefits information
Photocopy any of these documents and keep them in one of the safe places suggested.

Medications
If you can, buy extra prescription medication so you can keep a supply away from your home in case you are not able to grab medication when you are leaving.
Let your pharmacy know your new address as soon as you move.

Doctor
