All Patients who live in Scotland have or will have something called an Emergency care summary.
This is basic information about your health which may be important if you need urgent medical care when your GP practice is closed. It means all NHS staff can access important information when the surgery is closed.
An ECS will contain:
Date of Birth
Name of your GP surgery
An identifying number called CHI
Information about any medicines given by your GP practice
Any bad reactions to any medicines or any allergies you may have
Please see the leaflet below for further information.
