Description

PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS   is the same as attribute ADDRESS.

PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS  is the usual ADDRESS nominated by the PATIENT, where the  ADDRESS ASSOCIATION TYPE is National Code  'Main Permanent Residence' or 'Other Permanent Residence'.

For the Commissioning Data Sets  it is necessary whenever an ADDRESS is included in a Commissioning Data Set message to allow correct interpretation by the recipient. The following values have been used in Commissioning Data Set message implementations and are recommended to be used.

1 or S

To denote a "Label format" ADDRESS, i.e. an ADDRESS consisting of up to five address lines of 35 characters where each line is left justified as a specific data element

2 or U

To denote an unstructured ADDRESS, i.e. an ADDRESS consisting of up to five contiguous data elements of 35 characters representing a 175 character string

If PATIENTS usually resident elsewhere are staying in hotels, hostels or other residential establishments for a short term, for example, a week, they should be recorded as staying at their usual place of residence. However if it is long term, such as at boarding school, the School ADDRESS must be recorded. University students may nominate either their home ADDRESS or the ADDRESS of their university accommodation.

Where PATIENTS are not capable of supplying this information, because of age or mental illness, for example, then the PERSON responsible for the PATIENT, such as a parent or guardian, should nominate the PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS.

PATIENTS not able to provide an ADDRESS should be asked for their most recent ADDRESS. If this cannot be established, record the ADDRESS as 'No fixed abode' or 'Address unknown'. These PATIENTS are regarded as resident in the local geographical district for commissioning purposes.

For birth episodes this should refer to the mother's usual place of residence.

The format of 5 lines of an35 conforms to ADDRESS FORMAT TYPE 'Unstructured Format'. The format refers to the physical layout of the ADDRESS, not the logical layout, and does not require intelligent intervention when splitting the text string into lines. For example:

 

Flat 1, 21 Arbuthnott Avenue, Pollo (35 chars)

 

k Estate, Lesser Hinkley, Staffords (35 chars)

 

hire (4 chars)

The PATIENT's name and ADDRESS should be withheld from any commissioning record which contains a valid NHS NUMBER.
