Heather Jarman Consultant nurse, Emergency care at St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, London

The emergency care nurse (ECN) role was introduced in the emergency department (ED) at St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, London, in January 2006. This was in response to a rise in both the number of patients presenting with complex critical care needs and in the problems associated with ensuring a consistent level of nursing proficiency in this area.
