EMERGENCY CARE SUMMARY
If you require medical after 6pm or at weekends, NHS24 and out of hours centers will be able to access your ECS records (Emergency Care Summary). This will tell the clinicians which drugs you are taking, all medications prescribed within the past year and whether you have had any adverse reactions.

If you do not wish to have an Emergency Care Summary record, please inform the Practice Manager.
