Emergency Hydrocortisone Refusal Letter

This letter has been produced for patients in the event of an emergency situation, where you are refused hydrocortisone, by a health care professional (HCP). If the HCP refuses you hydrocortisone, you or your family can ask the individual to sign this letter. Once it is signed and dated, this letter could go into your hospital notes. In any event, if you are in A&E or on a hospital ward, the patient or their family  should insist on the HCP urgently contacting the endocrinologist on call. Hopefully, this letter will never need to be signed as the HCP reading it should understand the necessity of treatment for the patient’s safety.

Please note: The Foundation cannot become involved in individual disputes, but our hydrocortisone resources can be accessed from our website and used by the patient or their family for information and awareness.
