We would like to inform the users of our service of some important clarifications to the scope of this service to avoid delay in response or rejection of a query.

This database contains the resolutions we have provided to queries received by our helpdesk in NHS England. At present it contains only classifications query resolutions, which relate specifically to our classifications products ICD-10 and OPCS-4, but a wider range of resolutions will be added in the future. If you are a clinical coder, then please read the specific guidance relating to Classifications query resolutions.

Important notice: where no national clinical coding standard exists, the resolutions are recommendations only and are based on the documentation provided with the query. While the recommendations from resolutions can be used to inform discussions across different NHS Organisations, they are not considered in the development of the NCCQ (UK) examination papers. Consequently, candidates should not use recommendations from helpdesk resolutions as a basis to answer NCCQ questions.

If you would like to submit a query to us please visit the contact us page and select the area your query relates to. If you have any problems using the database or would like to provide feedback, please contact us via the helpdesk.

Please note: As the database contains coding queries relating to NHS England only, visitors from other UK countries should follow the below guidance:
