  • Applicants for the 2018-19 Clinical Coding Trainer Programme

    It has been brought to our attention that the total cost for the purchase order published under the ‘What do I need to know?’ heading on the Clinical Coding Training Programme  (CCTP) page was incorrect.  In order for an application to be accepted for the CCTP a purchase order must be submitted for a total of £764.33 for NHS or £917.30 for non-NHS (both excluding VAT). The Terminology and Classifications Delivery Service would like to apologise for this error and thank the service for drawing this discrepancy to our attention.  We can confirm that this error has now been rectified on the website. Any applicants who have already submitted an application for the Clinical Coding Trainer Programme with a purchase order for an amount other than those listed above will be contacted shortly.
