What should I do if I am medically dependent on power?
It is important you let us know immediately if you or a family member are medically dependent on power, and requires the use of mains electricity for critical medical support (uses an approved life support machine), and any disconnection may result in loss of life or serious harm.
We will request evidence of medical dependency – you and your doctor or health provider need to complete the form below and return it to us by emailing email@example.com

You will receive a confirmation email to confirm that are now on our medical register.

During a power outage...
We suggest you refer to your emergency backup plan.
Contact your local health provider to find out what your options are during the outage.
When power cuts are planned, for example to work on power lines, we will endeavour to give you advanced notice.
