This is a collaborative project with the National Neurosciences Advisory Group and the Neurological Alliance. Neurology outpatient coding is needed to achieve a better understanding of outpatient activity, in order to support service planning and benchmarking. Opportunities for service redesign and effective healthcare resource utilisation depend on accurate data describing outpatient activity and the nature of conditions seen. The intention is to link a standardised approach for assignment of diagnostic categories by the clinician to SNOMED-CT codes.
