*  Note - National Codes 80-97 should not be reported nationally until the functionality to do so becomes available in the next release of the Commissioning Data Sets and the associated XML Schema. Prior to this release, these codes must be recorded locally, however the National Codes 80-97 cannot be transmitted in the current version of the Commissioning Data Sets (Version 6-2). Further guidance can be found on the NHS Digital website at: SCCI0075 and  SCCI0076.
