  • A broad classification of types of diagnoses which may be made as a result of Accident and Emergency Attendance. The full description is made up of codes from three tables - ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DIAGNOSIS, Accident and Emergency Attendance: ANATOMICAL AREAS and Accident and Emergency Attendance: ANATOMICAL SIDE. ANATOMICAL AREA (a classification of parts of the human body) and ANATOMICAL SIDE (an indication of the side of the human body) together give the Anatomical Site of clinical problems presented at an Accident and Emergency Attendance.
  • Certain items are sub-analysed to specify the diagnosis, investigation or treatment more precisely. These are marked with an asterisk. The diagnosis sub-analysis list follows the main diagnosis list, and the treatment sub-analysis list follows the main treatment list.

  • It is recommended that computerised systems provide a minimum of six character fields for each category in order to accommodate more detailed information if necessary. Where fewer than six characters are required for coding, such as for investigations and treatments, it is recommended that the codes are left-justified and the unused fields left blank.

DIAGNOSTICS WAITING TIMES AND ACTIVITY DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

This data set is out of date therefore the information should not be used.
For further information, see the NHS England website at: Monthly Diagnostic Waiting Times and Activity.

The Diagnostic waiting times reporting of the monthly waiting times and activity reporting (DM01).

The Diagnostics Waiting Times and Activity Data Set provides definitions to support the national data collections on diagnostic tests, a key element towards monitoring waits from referral to treatment. Organisations responsible for the diagnostic test activity report the diagnostic test waiting times and the number of tests completed.

The distinctions between the data set groups are not absolute and some procedures could be collected under more than one of the clinical groupings. A PATIENT waiting for a diagnostic investigation should be counted only once for each test they are waiting for, wherever the test is to be performed and even if there is any additional therapeutic intervention. Each test should be identified by their OPCS Classification of Interventions and Procedures coding where applicable.

The diagnostic investigations are grouped into categories of Imaging, Physiological Measurement and Endoscopy. The data set is for the monthly return covering 15 key diagnostic tests as below:

IMAGING

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Computer Tomography
  • Non-obstetric ultrasound
  • Barium Enema
  • DEXA Scan (Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry)

PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENT

  • Audiology - audiological assessments
  • Cardiology - echocardiography
  • Cardiology - electrophysiology
  • Neurophysiology - peripheral neurophysiology
  • Respiratory physiology - sleep studies
  • Urodynamics - pressures & flows

ENDOSCOPY

  • Colonoscopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Cystoscopy
  • Gastroscopy
Aggregated numbers of PATIENTS waiting for a diagnostic test/procedure funded by the NHS should be included. This includes all referral routes (i.e. whether the PATIENT was referred by a GENERAL PRACTITIONER or by a hospital-based clinician or other route) and also all settings (i.e. Out-Patient Clinic, WARD, Imaging Department or a type of LOCATION such as a Health Centre). It is recognised that there will be some overlap between PATIENTS reported in this data set and PATIENTS reported in the other waiting times data sets.

How the data set is transmitted

Information is submitted onto the Unify2 database. Full guidance on Unify2 can be found at: Unify2.

Further guidance

For further guidance on extracting the data sets and PATIENT PATHWAYS, see the NHS England website at: Diagnostics Waiting Times and Activity.

DIAGNOSTICS WAITING TIMES CENSUS DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

This data set is out of date therefore the information should not be used.
For further information, see the NHS England website at: Quarterly Diagnostic Waiting Times.

The Diagnostic Census of the waiting times for DIAGNOSTIC TEST REQUESTS.

The Diagnostics Waiting Times Census Data Set provides definitions to support the national data collections on diagnostic tests, a key element towards monitoring waits from referral to treatment. This is a census of diagnostic test waiting times.

The diagnostic investigations are grouped into categories of Endoscopy, Imaging, Pathology and Physiological Measurement.

The distinctions between these groups are not absolute and some procedures could be collected under more than one of the clinical groupings. A PATIENT waiting for a diagnostic investigation should be counted only once for each test they are waiting for, wherever the test is to be performed and even if there is any additional therapeutic intervention. Each test should be identified by their OPCS Classification of Interventions and Procedures coding where applicable.

This data set is for the census covering 4 main areas of diagnostic tests as below:

  • Part 1 - Endoscopy
  • Part 2 - Imaging
  • Part 3 - Pathology
  • Parts 4 to 11 - Physiological Measurement

Patient level information

Information is submitted onto the Unify2 database. All PATIENTS waiting for a diagnostic test/procedure funded by the NHS should be included. This includes all referral routes (i.e. whether the PATIENT was referred by a GENERAL PRACTITIONER or by a hospital-based clinician or other route) and also all settings (i.e. Out-Patient Clinic, WARD, Imaging Department, GP Practice, one-stop centres etc.). It is recognised that there will be some overlap between PATIENTS reported on this census and PATIENTS reported in the inpatient and outpatient waiting times returns.

How the data set is transmitted

This data set is out of date therefore the information should not be used.
For further information, see the NHS England website at: Mixed-Sex Accommodation.

The Mixed-Sex Accommodation Data Set collects performance information on a monthly basis from Health Care Providers of NHS funded care, including independent sector and social enterprise/voluntary organisations, on the number of occurrences of breaches of the sleeping accommodation guidance. However the count of occurrences of breaches exclude private and self-funded PATIENTS in NHS Health Care Providers.

A breach occurs at the point a PATIENT is admitted to mixed-sex accommodation or moves to mixed-sex accommodation from Same Sex Accommodation.

Breaches of bathroom accommodation, including situations where a PATIENT must pass through opposite gender areas to reach their own facilities, and no provision of women-only lounges in mental health units, must be recorded at organisation level, and plans put in place to deal with the problem. However these types of breaches are not reported in the Mixed-Sex Accommodation Data Set.

Further guidance on the recognising and reporting of breaches is available on the NHS England Website.

NATIONAL DIRECT ACCESS AUDIOLOGY WAITING TIMES DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

This data set is out of date therefore the information should not be used.
For further information, see the NHS England website at: Direct Access Audiology.

The National Direct Access Audiology Waiting Times Data Set collects performance information on a monthly basis on the Referral To Treatment pathways of PATIENTS who are receiving NHS funded audiology treatment in England, who are not already included in the Referral To Treatment Data Set data collection. This includes:

  • both analogue and digital hearing aid fittings
  • services provided directly by NHS Healthcare Providers and also NHS funded PATIENTS treated via the Independent Sector and third sector providers (collected directly or via Primary Care Trusts)
  • both new and existing PATIENTS
  • any other PATIENTS attending Audiology services directly

For the purposes of the National Direct Access Audiology Waiting Times Data Set, "Direct Access" means PATIENTS who are not referred via Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist or other hospital CONSULTANT. Any pathways that are subject to the 18 week waiting time target for Referral to Treatment are out of scope. For this reason PATIENTS on Ear, Nose and Throat pathways (or pathways from other specialties) are excluded from this central return data set - information on these PATIENTS is available via the Referral To Treatment Data Set data collection.

The National Direct Access Audiology Waiting Times Data Set is in two parts, as follows:

Part 1 - Treated Patients should be completed for PATIENTS who have had an ACTIVITY which ends their REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD (such as first definitive treatment, or a decision not to treat), within the REPORTING PERIOD.

Part 2 - Untreated Patients should be completed for PATIENTS without a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE within the REPORTING PERIOD.

For further guidance, see NHS England website at: Direct Access Audiology.
