Emergency Care Summary

keyboard_stethoscopeEvery patient in Scotland now has an Emergency Care Summary (ECS) containing basic information about your current medication allergies.

Your ECS can only be looked at by authorised staff in Out-Of-Hours centres, Accident and Emergency Departments, and at NHS 24.  They will ask for your permission to view your ECS unless you are too ill to give permission.  In this case staff may be able to view it anyway, in the interests of your safety.

Having an ECS should make your care easier and safer.  However. You have the right to remove your ECS from the system.  If you don’t want to have an ECS, please contact reception.
