  • Submit Details of Clinical Contacts

    Published: November 2017

    Do you have clinical contacts who would be happy to provide advice when developing the Classifications, coding standards and guidance?

    When developing national clinical coding standards and guidance and the ICD-10 and OPCS-4 Classifications we draw on a wide range of knowledge, expertise and information sources, in addition to the classifications knowledge we have within the team. It is important that developments are based on sound and up-to-date clinical input.

    If you are a clinician with an interest in the classifications or are a coding professional who has contact with clinicians who would be willing to provide us with clinical information and advice to inform the development of the Clinical Classifications, coding standards and guidance, please submit your contact details here.  

    We will hold the details on file and they will only be accessible by the Terminology and Classifications Delivery Service; they will not be shared outside of our team without prior consent.

    In the first instance clinical contacts will be contacted by e-mail when input is required on a subject related to their clinical specialty.

  • Coding of Sepsis Consultation Results and Consultation on the Proposed Update to DChS.I.1 Sepsis

    Published: November 2017

    The results of the Coding of Sepsis Consultation which was open in July to September are now available in the Consultation area on Delen. The document summarises the issues identified in the consultation and contains our responses and the actions we have taken. We would like to thank everyone who completed this consultation and contributed their feedback.

    We have produced a proposed update to DChS.I.1: Sepsis, septic shock, severe sepsis and neutropenic sepsis using the feedback received from the Coding of Sepsis Consultation. The Proposed Update to DChS.I.1 Sepsis is available for review and comment in the Consultation area on Delen. Please provide us with your feedback and any comments by Friday 8 December 2017.

    We have also published a knowledge sharing article which illustrates the importance and benefits of engaging with clinical teams when coding sepsis. It describes the processes that have been put in place at Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to ensure sepsis is recorded and coded correctly. The document ‘Coding of Sepsis at SUHNFT’ can be found in the Resource Library on Delen.
