Adding emergency contacts helps your healthcare providers to contact your family member, close friend or carer during an emergency.
Access to your emergency contact details
You can store details of people you would like to be contacted in a medical emergency in your record. This could be family members, or close friends or carers. Make sure these people provide permission before you add their personal information.
Your emergency contacts will be available to healthcare providers involved in your care. People listed may be contacted if required, so it’s important their details are kept current. You cannot hide or control access to your emergency contact information.
