Description

LOCAL SUB-SPECIALTY CODE  is the same as the attribute LOCAL SUB-SPECIALTY CODE.

LOCAL SUB-SPECIALTY CODE  is an optional item in the Commissioning Data Set version 6-2, and is for local use only.  However it must NOT contain any text which may identify the PATIENT DIAGNOSIS  of the PATIENT  to which the ACTIVITY  relates (for example, it must not include the acronym 'HIV') or the Patient Procedure  being undertaken (for example using the acronym 'TOP' for terminations of pregnancy). Use of such identifiers contravenes the legal requirements for withholding identifiable information about PATIENTS  with identified conditions.  See Security Issues and Patient Confidentiality  for further details.
