Consultant Led Activity

A Consultant Led Activity is an ACTIVITY where a CONSULTANT retains overall clinical responsibility.

The CONSULTANT is not necessarily physically present for each PATIENT's APPOINTMENT, but he/she takes overall clinical responsibility for PATIENT care.

The MAIN SPECIALTY of the CONSULTANT retaining overall clinical responsibility is recorded using the appropriate MAIN SPECIALTY CODE along with their CONSULTANT CODE. A TREATMENT FUNCTION CODE will be recorded where the ACTIVITY is delivered in a TREATMENT FUNCTION.

The MAIN SPECIALTY CODE is used by the Secondary Uses Service to identify Consultant Led Activity.
