CDS SUBMISSION PROTOCOL

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Commissioning Data Set messages submitted by providers carry information to determine the update method to be used by the Secondary Uses Service in order to update the national database.

These update rules are known as the Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol and the set of data controls used to indicate this are carried in the Commissioning Data Set Transaction Header Group which must be present and correct in every CDS TYPE submitted to the Secondary Uses Service.

Two Update Mechanisms are available:

  • Net Change - to support the management of an individual CDS TYPE in the Secondary Uses Service database and enables Commissioning data to be inserted/ updated or deleted.
    CDS Senders are expected to use the Net Change Update Mechanism wherever possible.

  • Bulk Replacement - to support the management of bulk commissioning data for an identified CDS BULK REPLACEMENT GROUP of data for a specified time period and for a specified CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY.
    CDS Senders should only use the Bulk Replacement Update Mechanism in exceptional circumstances.

It is strongly advised that all NHS Trusts should, as a minimum process, commence migration to use the CDS-XML Version 6 Message for weekly Net Change submissions by March 2009 as this is the date mandated by the "NHS Operating Framework".

Net Change:
Net Change processes are managed by specific data settings as defined in the CDS V6 TYPE 005N option of the CDS Transaction Header Group. The Secondary Uses Service uses the following data to manage the database:

Each CDS TYPE must have a CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER which must be uniquely maintained for the life of that Commissioning Data Set record. This is a particular consideration where mergers and/or healthcare systems are changed or upgraded, see CDS Submission and PCT Mergers. Any change to the CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER during the "lifetime" of a Commissioning Data Set record will almost certainly result in a duplicate record being lodged in the Secondary Uses Service database.

A Commissioning Data Set record delete transaction must be sent to the Secondary Uses Service database when any previously sent Commissioning Data Set record requires deletion/removal, for example to reflect Commissioner changes etc.

The CDS APPLICABLE DATE and CDS APPLICABLE TIME must be used to ensure that all Commissioning data is updated in the Secondary Uses Service database in the correct chronological order.

The CDS SENDER IDENTITY must not change during the lifetime of the CDS data.
This is particularly significant for multiple and/or merged organisations, and for those services who submit data on behalf of another Primary Care Trust or NHS Trust.

Bulk Replacement
Net Change processes are managed by specific data settings as defined in the CDS V6 TYPE 005B option of the CDS Transaction Header Group.Bulk Replacement processes are managed by specific data settings as defined in the CDS V6 TYPE 005B option of the CDS Transaction Header Group. The Secondary Uses Service uses the following data to manage the database:


Every CDS TYPE must be submitted using the correct CDS BULK REPLACEMENT GROUP.

The CDS REPORT PERIOD START DATE and the CDS REPORT PERIOD END DATE, (i.e. the effective date period), must be valid and consistent, and reflect the dates relevant to the Commissioning data contained in the interchange.

The CDS SENDER IDENTITY must not change during the lifetime of the Commissioning Data Set record. This is particularly significant for multiple and/or merged organisations, and for those services who submit data on behalf of another Primary Care Trust or NHS Trust.

The CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY must be identified in each Commissioning Data Set and must not be changed during the lifetime of the Commissioning Data Set record otherwise the data stored in the Secondary Uses Service database may lose its integrity (e.g. duplicate Commissioning data may be stored).

For this reason it is advised that the ORGANISATION CODE (PCT OF RESIDENCE) should always be used to determine the CDS SENDER IDENTITY as detailed in the Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid. Senders must also be aware that if the ORGANISATION CODE (PCT OF RESIDENCE) is itself derived from the PATIENT's POSTCODE OF USUAL ADDRESS then great care must be taken to manage all elements of this relationship.

If it is necessary to change any of this data during the lifetime of a Commissioning Data Set record, then the Secondary Uses Service help desk should be contacted for advice.

It is strongly advised that users of the Bulk Replacement Mechanism maintain a correctly generated CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER within the Commissioning data. This will establish a migration path towards the use of the Net Change Mechanism and will also then minimise the risk of creating duplicate Commissioning Data Set data.

Sub contracting
If a Provider sub-contracts healthcare provision and its associated Commissioning Data Set submission to a second Provider, arrangements to submit the Commissioning Data Set data must be made locally to ensure that only one Provider sends the Commissioning Data Set data to the Secondary Uses Service.

If the second Provider wishes to add other Commissioning data to the Secondary Uses Service database to that already submitted by the first Provider, both parties need to ensure that a different CDS SENDER IDENTITY is used. Often this is done by changing the last 2 digits of the 5 digit code (the Site element of the Organisation Code).

Note: Data sent using the same CDS SENDER IDENTITY by two different parties will most likely overwrite each other's data in the Secondary Uses Service database. Further advice can be obtained from the Secondary Uses Service helpdesk.

Users should be aware of how the 15 character code of their CDS INTERCHANGE SENDER IDENTITY (also known as the EDI Address) is created. this may depend on how their XML interface solution has been set up. It may not be possible to rely on a change to the Provider Code in order to change the CDS INTERCHANGE SENDER IDENTITY should this becomes necessary.

FACE TO FACE CONTACT COMMUNITY CARE

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Face To Face Contact Community Care is a CARE CONTACT.

A contact which is made by one or more nurses or community support workers (nursing) with a PATIENT or his/her proxy during a Community Episode. The contact occurs when a PATIENT or their proxy attends a clinic or when the nurse or community support worker (nursing) makes a domiciliary visit to see the PATIENT.

A proxy contact is a single occasion involving contact between a proxy and one or more members of a community nurse staff group within a Nursing In The Community Programme. Contacts with proxies only count if the contact is in lieu of the contact with the PATIENT, and the proxy is able more effectively than the PATIENT to ensure that the specified advice/treatment devised for the PATIENT is followed. This is most likely to be the case where the PATIENT is unable to communicate effectively say for an infant, or for a PERSON who is mentally ill or has learning disabilities.

One or more nurses or community support workers (nursing) in the same or different Nursing In The Community Programmes may be in contact with a PATIENT at the same time.

Contacts should be recorded as follows:

a.If one or more NURSES or community support workers (nursing) from the same programme are in contact with one patient at the same time, this should be recorded as one face-to-face contact
b.If one or more NURSES or community support workers (nursing) from different programmes are in contact with one patient at the same time, this should be recorded as one contact for each programme involved
a.If one or more NURSES or community support workers (nursing) from the same programme are in contact with one PATIENT at the same time, this should be recorded as one face-to-face contact
b.If one or more NURSES or community support workers (nursing) from different programmes are in contact with one PATIENT at the same time, this should be recorded as one contact for each programme involved
c.For contacts at a Day Care Facility, where repeated contacts may occur during the course of a day, this should be recorded as one contact for each programme involved
d.If two NURSES of different disciplines but both classed in the community nurse staff group other community nurses, such as stomatherapist and a continuing care nurse, are in contact with one PATIENT at the same time, this should be recorded as two face-to-face contacts, one for each discipline

Group activity, where, for example, general advice is given to several PATIENTS at the same time should not be recorded as Nurse or Midwife Contacts.

A Face To Face Contact Community Care may involve activities attributable to a structured programme, such as the following:

a.Screening Test 
b.Group Session 
c.Health Promotion Other Activity
d.EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT
e.Test Of Immunity 
f.Immunisation Dose Given 
g.Face To Face Contact Surveillance 

For such activities they must be recorded as part of the respective structured programmes as well as attributed to the Nursing In The Community Programmes.

If the PATIENT is currently subject to a Mental Health Care Spell and the contact NURSE is also their allocated care programme approach care coordinator then a Face To Face Contact CPA Care Coordinator should also be recorded.

For domiciliary visits, an indication of whether the Face To Face Contact Community Care is the first occasion on which a PATIENT is seen should be recorded as an initial contact. A LOCATION TYPE should also be recorded.

Information recorded for a Face To Face Contact Community Care includes:

Contact Date
First Contact In Financial Year
Initial Contact (applies to domiciliary visits only)
LOCATION TYPE (applies to domiciliary visits only)

REFERRAL TO TREATMENT CLOCK STOP ADMINISTRATIVE EVENT

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Data Set Change Notice 18/2006 published in December 2006, defined essential new data items required to support the measurement of 18 week REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIODS (monitoring of DH PSA target 13 - "By 2008, no one will have to wait longer than 18 weeks from GP referral to hospital treatment"). In particular, the Data Set Change Notice 18/2006 introduced the following new data items.

Strategic reporting of 18 weeks will be undertaken by the Secondary Uses Service using data obtained via the Commissioning Data Sets . The new data items defined in Data Set Change Notice 18/2006 are enabled to flow in Commissioning Data Set version 6-0, 6-1, and will continue to flow in subsequent versions.

However, an event which results in an update to the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD STATUS may occur outside the events that are defined in the Commissioning Data Sets (typically Outpatient or Inpatient encounters) and will therefore not flow to the Secondary Uses Service. These types of events have been termed as "administrative events". They can be defined as any communication event between the Health Care Provider and the PATIENT that occurs outside of an outpatient attendance or inpatient admission and that results in the PATIENT's REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD STATUS being changed to stop the 18 week clock. These events are not face to face consultations and do not necessarily involve clinical staff.

These Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Events may be carried using the Commissioning Data Set Type 020 Outpatient record type. They are differentiated from PATIENT contact ACTIVITY by the FIRST ATTENDANCE value carried within them. FIRST ATTENDANCE national code 5 "Referral to treatment clock stop administrative event" signifies that an ACTIVITY has taken place which has ended the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD and changed the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD STATUS to one of the following:

30 Start of First Definitive Treatment

31 Start of Active Monitoring initiated by the PATIENT

32 Start of Active Monitoring initiated by the CARE PROFESSIONAL

34 Decision not to treat - decision not to treat made or no further contact required

35 PATIENT declined offered treatment

36 PATIENT died before treatment

When to Use  Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Events

These events may happen because:

Secondary Uses Service Processing

The Secondary Uses Service currently processes the following Commissioning Data Set record types in order to build Referral To Treatment pathways.

All other types are not currently processed and so if they carry the  REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE for a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD, a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event must also be sent in order to inform the Secondary Uses Service of the clock stop.

Note that future versions of the Secondary Uses Service will also process:

The dates when ORGANISATIONS submitting REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD data to the Secondary Uses Service can cease having to also send a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event when a clock stop is carried in one of the Elective Admission List Commissioning Data Set Types, will be notified as part of the Secondary Uses Service release documentation. It is also anticipated that CDS V6 TYPE 021 - FUTURE OUTPATIENT CDS will be processed once piloting is complete and its use is approved by the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care. A cancelled future Appointments Diagram Overview record could carry a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD Clock Stop. A cancelled future APPOINTMENT record could carry a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD Clock Stop. Again the timescales will be notified as part of the Secondary Uses Service release documentation.

There are no current plans for the Secondary Uses Service to process the remaining Commissioning Data Set Types:

This is the because a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event occurring in the scenarios where these record types are generated, would be rare. However this will be reviewed as part of the ongoing maintenance of the Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event, and the requirements for the Secondary Uses Service.

When NOT to Use a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event

The Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event should NOT be used to correct previously submitted records where a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE was submitted incorrectly to the Secondary Uses Service.

For example, if an Out-Patient Appointment took place where First Definitive Treatment was started, but the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE was not sent in the corresponding CDS V6 TYPE 020 - OUTPATIENT CDS record as it was not entered on the Patient Administration System until later; then the CDS V6 TYPE 020 - OUTPATIENT CDS record should be resubmitted with the correct data. A Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event should NOT be used.

Where an ORGANISATION's Patient Administration System supports the submission of cancelled and Did Not Attend appointments in the CDS V6 TYPE 020 - OUTPATIENT CDS, the Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event should NOT be used when a PATIENT has a booked Out-Patient Appointment, which is then cancelled because, for example, the PATIENT dies. In these cases the CDS V6 TYPE 020 - OUTPATIENT CDS can carry the details of a cancelled CARE ACTIVITY, including the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE and update to the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT STATUS. (Note - not all Patient Administration Systems provide functionality to create and submit Commissioning Data Set records for cancellations/Did Not Attend's as this is not yet mandated - you should contact your Patient Administration System support team to ascertain whether your Patient Administration System supports this. If not, then it is permissible to send a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event in order to stop the clock in the Secondary Uses Service instead).

Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Events only require a sub-set of the data elements contained in the CDS V6 TYPE 020 - OUTPATIENT CDS record, to be submitted to the Secondary Uses Service. All other data elements not listed should be omitted from the XML submission of the CDS V6 TYPE 020 - OUTPATIENT CDS record to the Secondary Uses Service. The submission of a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event is not reliant on the use of the Net Changes Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol to the Secondary Uses Service

The required data elements making up a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event are:

The national 18 Week Summary Patient Tracking List is intended to collect a set of performance information about PATIENTS with active REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIODS that are nearing the 18 week target date. Its main purpose is to focus on those PATIENTS that may potentially breach the 18 week target, providing a structure which enables the most 'at risk' PATIENTS to be clearly identified. The 18 Week Referral To Treatment Summary Patient Tracking List does not cover all the components of a Patient Tracking List that individual Providers and Commissioners may wish to develop and share - especially at PATIENT level. The 18 Week Referral to Treatment Summary Patient Tracking List does not cover all the components of a Patient Tracking List that individual Providers and Commissioners may wish to develop and share - especially at PATIENT level. The sharing of any extended data sets between Providers and Commissioners is subject to local arrangements. Examples of patient-level data sets developed during piloting of this central return, are available from the Department of Health 18 week website (address below).

For most PATIENTS the start of a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD begins with a GP REFERRAL REQUEST to a CONSULTANT in secondary care. In addition this data set also covers REFERRAL REQUESTS to CONSULTANTS from:

Referrals to nurse consultants and allied health professionals are currently out of scope for 18 weeks Referral To Treatment monitoring.

MAIN SPECIALTY CODE

Change to Attribute: Changed Description

A unique code identifying each MAIN SPECIALTY designated by Royal Colleges. This is the same as the OCCUPATION CODES describing specialties.

Specialties are divisions of clinical work which may be defined by body systems (dermatology), age (paediatrics), clinical technology (nuclear medicine), clinical function (rheumatology), group of diseases (oncology) or combinations of these factors. Only Specialty titles recognised by the Royal Colleges and Faculties should be used. This list is maintained by the General and Specialist Medical Practice (Education, Training and Qualifications) Order 2003 and European Primary and Specialist Dental Qualifications Regulations 1998.

Each CONSULTANT should be assigned a MAIN SPECIALTY by the ORGANISATION to which the CONSULTANT is contracted. For physicians and surgeons with a generalist component to their work, the MAIN SPECIALTY should be general medicine or general surgery. The hallmark of a general physician or general surgeon is the continued care of unselected emergency referrals. The MAIN SPECIALTY is specific to a Health Care Provider. If, for example, a CONSULTANT physician working in two Health Care Providers has a generalist component to the work in one and not the other, general medicine is only assigned as the MAIN SPECIALTY in the former case. CONSULTANTS in general medicine or general surgery may also have specialist interests and these should be recorded as well as the MAIN SPECIALTY.

The initial source of the information should be the designation on the CONSULTANT's contract. This should be checked periodically against the work a CONSULTANT is actually doing so that the statistics can relate to a CONSULTANT's current type of work.

The MAIN SPECIALTY only should be used for the purpose of producing Specialty costing statistics and for Workforce statistics where links with ACTIVITY and finance are required. Other specialist interests of CONSULTANTS may be recorded for workforce planning purposes.

This will be used to indicate the skill level of medical and dental employees.

For further information, contact The NHS Information Centre for health and social care by email at: enquiries@ic.nhs.uk.

NHS NUMBER

Change to Attribute: Changed Description

The NHS NUMBER, the primary identifier of a PERSON, is a unique identifier for a PATIENT within the NHS in England and Wales.

This will not vary by any ORGANISATION of which a PERSON is a PATIENT.

It is mandatory to record the NHS NUMBER. There are exceptions, such as Accident and Emergency care, sexual health and major incidents, as defined in existing national policies.

The NHS NUMBER is 10 numeric digits in length. The tenth digit is a check digit used to confirm its validity. The check digit is validated using the Modulus 11 algorithm and the use of this algorithm is mandatory. There are 5 steps in the validation of the check digit:

Step 1 Multiply each of the first nine digits by a weighting factor as follows:

Digit Position
(starting from the left) Factor:

110
29
38
47
56
65
74
83
92

Step 2 Add the results of each multiplication together.

Step 3 Divide the total by 11 and establish the remainder.

Step 4 Subtract the remainder from 11 to give the check digit.

If the result is 11 then a check digit of 0 is used. If the result is 10 then the NHS NUMBER is invalid and not used.

Step 5 Check the remainder matches the check digit. If it does not, the NHS NUMBER is invalid.
