Description

CONSULTANT CODE  is the same as attribute CONSULTANT CODE.

All Midwife Episodes and attendances are identified in the Commissioning Data Sets and Hospital Episode Statistics by a pseudo CARE PROFESSIONAL MAIN SPECIALTY CODE, 560, see Main Specialty and Treatment Function Codes Table. An Organisation Data Service Default Code is used in the CONSULTANT CODE field to show that a MIDWIFE is the responsible CARE PROFESSIONAL. Note that the MIDWIFE's own  Nursing and Midwifery Council code is not used.

All Nursing Episodes and attendances are identified in the Commissioning Data Sets and Hospital Episode Statistics by a pseudo CARE PROFESSIONAL MAIN SPECIALTY CODE, 950, see Main Specialty and Treatment Function Codes Table. An Organisation Data Service Default Code is used in the CONSULTANT CODE field to show that a NURSE is the responsible CARE PROFESSIONAL. Note that the NURSE's own  Nursing and Midwifery Council code is not used.

CONSULTANT CODE will be replaced with both PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION ISSUER CODE and PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION ENTRY IDENTIFIER, which are the most recently approved national information standards to describe the required definition.
