ADMINISTRATIVE CATEGORY CODE

This is recorded for PATIENTACTIVITY.

Description

This is recorded for PATIENT ACTIVITY.

A PATIENT  who is an Overseas Visitor  does not qualify for free NHS healthcare and can choose to pay for NHS treatment or for private treatment. If they pay for NHS treatment then they should be recorded as NHS PATIENTS.

The PATIENT's ADMINISTRATIVE CATEGORY CODE  may change during an episode or spell. For example, the PATIENT may opt to change from NHS to private health care. In this case, the start and end dates for each new ADMINISTRATIVE CATEGORY PERIOD (episode or spell) should be recorded.

If the ADMINISTRATIVE CATEGORY CODE changes during a Hospital Provider Spell the ADMINISTRATIVE CATEGORY CODE (ON ADMISSION) is used to derive the 'Category of PATIENT' for Hospital Episode Statistics  (HES).

The category 'amenity PATIENT' is only applicable to PATIENTS using a Hospital Bed.
