NHS Emergency Steroid Card for adrenal insufficiency patients released

19 Mar 2020



To keep patients with adrenal insufficiency safe during the COVID-19 crisis NHSE&I have agreed it is appropriate to release the NHS Emergency Steroid Card as a PDF that patients can download themselves.

Guidance related to the release of the new NHS Emergency Steroid Card is almost ready for publication but the COVID-19 crisis has taken precedence.

The card can be downloaded from our adrenal crisis webpage, where you will also find additional emergency adrenal insufficiency management information and COVID-19 guidance.
