GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTICE CODE (PATIENT REGISTRATION) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION CODE.
The data for GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTICE CODE (PATIENT REGISTRATION) is supplied by the NHS Prescription Services.
GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTICE CODE (PATIENT REGISTRATION) is the ORGANISATION CODE of the GP Practice that the PATIENT is registered with.
- V81997 should be used when a PATIENT presents, who is not currently registered at a GP Practice, but is eligible to be registered should they wish to.
- V81999 should be used where it is not possible to determine a PATIENT's registered GP Practice code, but it is known that they should have one, or where it is impossible to determine whether they should or shouldn't have a registered practice (for instance the PATIENT cannot communicate and is unidentified).
GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTICE CODE (PATIENT REGISTRATION) will be replaced with GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTICE (PATIENT REGISTRATION), which is the most recent approved national information standard to describe the required definition.
This data element is also known by these names:
