The NHS Steroid Emergency Card was produced to improve patient safety for those with adrenal insufficiency. The card will alert medical professionals across the NHS to your dependence on hydrocortisone.

This is now available electronically. The card includes areas for you to fill in your personal details, as well as basic information and a QR code linking to the SfE’s guide to treating adrenal insufficiency.

We recommend all adults with adrenal insufficiency should carry this card.
