A flow chart detailing the Clinical Coding process from start to finish.

Patient is discharged from hospital. Is the patient deceased?
Death certificate is completed, notes are filed and sent to Patient Affairs.


Notes are filed and await collection by the Clinical Coding Support Workers.
Notes arrive within the Coding office and are places on the shelves in chronological order by date of discharge.
Coders collect the notes from the shelves, giving priority to those with earlier discharge dates.
Notes are coded according to national standards and agreed local guidance. Are there any issues requiring attention?
Codes are sent back to Medical Records, or to the ward if necessary.



Bring issue or query to the attention of a member of the Senior Coding Team. Did this resolve the issue?
