Error in the OPCS-4.9 National Clinical Coding Standards (2020) reference book example

Published: May 2020

Dear colleague,

We can confirm that there is an error in the third example following PCSX24: High Cost Drugs (X81-X98) in the National Clinical Coding Standards OPCS-4.9 Reference Book 2020. The example should read:

Patient with rheumatoid arthritis admitted solely for an intermittent IV infusion of Rituximab

X28.1 Intermittent intravenous infusion of therapeutic substance

Once the example has been corrected, we will re-publish the reference book. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Kind regards
