The Emergency Care Summary (ECS) has been created to improve the safety and quality of patient care.
ECS gives health care staff faster, easier access to reliable information about patients to help with their treatment during emergency situations or times when their GP Surgery is closed.
This website is designed for all users and suppliers of the Emergency Care Summary (ECS), including GPs, and provides information and advice on how to understand and use ECS.
Please select the section of the website that applies to you for up to date news, guidance and answers to frequently asked questions.
