CLINIC CODE is the same as attribute CLINIC OR FACILITY CODE.

For Commissioning Data Set version 6-2, CLINIC CODE identifies the CLINIC OR FACILITY where an Out-Patient Appointment took place.

CLINIC CODE is an optional item in the Commissioning Data Set version 6-2, and is for local use only.  However it must NOT contain any text which may identify the PATIENT DIAGNOSIS of the PATIENTS using the CLINIC OR FACILITY (for example, it must not include the acronym 'HIV') or the Patient Procedure being undertaken (for example using the acronym 'TOP' for terminations of pregnancy). Use of such identifiers contravenes the legal requirements for withholding identifiable information about PATIENTS with identified conditions.  See Security Issues and Patient Confidentiality for further details.
