Use in Commissioning Data Set Version 6-2 onwards

Where Out-Patient Clinics are held on WARDS (such as Pre-assessment Clinics), these should be categorised as ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE National Code E01 'Out-Patient Clinic' and not National Code E02 'WARD'.  This will allow Ward Attendances to be differentiated from Out-Patient Clinics in the CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set flow.

For ACTIVITY falling under Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment Measurement, ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE may be submitted to allow identification of Allied Health Professional ACTIVITY taking place on WARDS, which is not related to the Hospital Provider Spell for the PATIENT being seen by the Allied Health Professional.  For example, if a Podiatrist were asked to see a PATIENT who was currently admitted for a condition where the agreed care pathway did not include Podiatry services, then an Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant should be recorded, with the ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE of E02 'WARD'.
