  • Release of the National Clinical Coding Standards reference books (2018) and results of the sepsis consultation

    Published: February 2018

    National Clinical Coding Standards reference books

    The National Clinical Coding Standards ICD-10 and OPCS-4.8 reference books (2018), for use from 1 April 2018, are now available to download from the Main Publications page on Delen.

    To aid users of the reference books in clearly identifying changes to the content, the Table of Changes section has been replaced with a Summary of Changes section which shows all amendments using track changes. Where appropriate, we have also included a rationale to indicate why a standard has been introduced, updated or deleted to provide context to the changes.

    We hope that this update proves useful and we welcome your feedback.

    The results of the Consultation on the Proposed Update to DChS.I.1 Sepsis, which was open in November to December 2017, are now available in the Consultation area on Delen. The document also contains the final standard for implementation on 1 April 2018.  We would like to thank everyone who completed this consultation and contributed their feedback.

  • Applicants for the 2018-19 Clinical Coding Trainer Programme

    Published: February 2018

    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.
