DELAY REASON REFERRAL TO FIRST SEEN FOR CANCER OR BREAST SYMPTOMS
|02||Out-patient capacity inadequate (i.e. no cancelled clinic, but not enough slots for this PATIENT)|
|04||Referral not received within 24 hours (Retired 1 July 2012)|
|05||PATIENT unavailable (the PATIENT has declined the opportunity to be seen within two weeks prior to any APPOINTMENT being offered)|
|06||PATIENT declines (the PATIENT declines all APPOINTMENT dates offered within two weeks)|
|07||PATIENT cancellation (the PATIENT cancels their booked APPOINTMENT)|
|08||PATIENT care not commissioned by the English NHS (waiting time standard does not apply)|
|99||Other reason (Retired 1 July 2012)|
- National Code 03 ‘Administrative delay’ should not be used to record delays linked to a ‘Did Not Attend’ (DNA) event where a waiting time adjustment has been entered into the PATIENT record.
- If National Code 98 'Other reason' is used, further detail must be recorded for the precise cause of the delay, within DELAY REASON COMMENT (FIRST SEEN).
- National Code 08 'PATIENT care not commissioned by the English NHS (waiting time standard does not apply)' should only be used in instances where the non-English administration has commissioned a two week wait service, i.e. the PRIORITY TYPE of the SERVICE REQUEST was National Code 03 'Two Week Wait', but the PATIENT was not seen within two weeks. This is to allow for different commissioning arrangements to be supported by local administrative and clinical systems.
