  • ICD-11 Chapter Reviews

    Published: November 2019

    Dear colleague,

    NHS Digital hosts the UK WHO-FIC Collaborating Centre and as part of our role we are contributing to the updating of ICD-11 for morbidity coding and would like to offer clinicians and other users of the classification an opportunity to review chapter content and provide feedback to us.

    The chapter reviews are part of our development work to assure the content from a UK perspective and to inform a future decision on its adoption and implementation. The World Health Assembly adopted ICD-11 in May 2019 with the expectation that member states will start to report in ICD-11 from January 2022 as detailed in the WHO resolution.  The implementation roadmap for the UK has yet to be determined; no decision has been made on the implementation date of ICD-11 in England.  NHS Digital is undertaking further testing of the latest release and supporting products to understand the impact on implementing ICD-11 and to inform a future decision.

    We are inviting clinicians and healthcare professionals to review the content of ICD-11 to identify if there are any:

    • diagnoses or conditions that are missing
    • code descriptions which are ambiguous or incorrect

    Our dedicated ICD-11 Chapter Reviews page includes instructions on how to complete the chapter reviews and an overview of the ICD-11 chapters. The overview contains information that you may find useful about each chapter, including what is classified within each chapter; a comparison between ICD-10 and ICD-11 block structure; chapter structure and rationale. At the end of the review there is the opportunity to submit proposed changes.

    If there are any clinicians at your organisation who are interested in reviewing ICD-11 content, please forward this information onto them.

    The ICD-11 Chapter reviews can be accessed here.

    Thank you in advance for your support with this activity.

    Kind regards

  • Please take part in the public consultation on the NHS Digital, Data and Technology Standards Framework

    Published: November 2018

    On October 17th, Secretary of State Matt Hancock published his vision for The Future of Healthcare. The vision emphasises the importance of technology and in particular the importance of technical standards that will help the NHS and social care to benefit from the potential of modern technology. The vision is out for consultation and people can provide feedback on it via this questionnaire.

    Alongside the vision, we have also published two important documents, which we are keen to get your feedback on. These documents are:

    1. The NHS Digital, Data and Technology Standards Framework

    and

    1. The Clinical Information Standards Specification 

    You can read and comment upon both documents on our dedicated consultation platform. The documents are in a format which allows you to comment publicly, but anonymously, so that everyone can see what each other is saying. Our hope is that this will help to avoid duplication, while also prompting thoughts and helping themes to emerge. There is also a short questionnaire on the site which allows you to provide feedback privately. The documents cover standards that are very important to the Delen community, including SNOMED CT, dm+d, ICD and OPCS-4 so it is essential that we get as much feedback as possible.

    We very much look forward to reading your responses, which will be used to update the documents and inform our plans.
