NHS Allied Health Professional Service (Referral to Treatment Measurement)

Description

An NHS Allied Health Professional Service (Referral To Treatment Measurement)  is a SERVICE.

An NHS Allied Health Professional Service (Referral To Treatment Measurement)  is a SERVICE  involving the treatment of a PATIENT  by one of the following types of Allied Health Professional:

Where the Allied Health Professional works in a Community Health Service, the Department of Health and Social Care  requires their Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment Measurement  activity to be reported in the Community Services Data Set

Where the Allied Health Professional activity took place at an Out-Patient Clinic, the Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment Measurement  activity must be reported in the CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set.  In addition to this, where an Allied Health Professional sees a PATIENT  on a WARD  but the ACTIVITY  is not related to the Hospital Provider Spell  the PATIENT  is being treated under, this should be regarded as replacing an  Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant, and a CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set record should flow.  ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE  may be submitted to allow identification of this Allied Health Professional ACTIVITY.  For example, if a Podiatrist  were asked to see a patient who was currently admitted for a condition where the agreed care pathway did not include Podiatry services, then an Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant  should be recorded, with the ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE  of E02 ' WARD ', and the relevant Referral To Treatment data items also completed.

Further guidance relating to Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment initiative can be found on the Department of Health and Social Care  part of the gov.uk website at: the Revised guide for referral to treatment for allied health professionals.
