Coding for flu and CQRS

Please see the email below and attached documents that has been sent to all practices in Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire:

"Dear Colleagues

I have now pulled information together to support practices in getting their GP Extraction Services (GPES) data / CQRS flu payments as accurate as they can be first go - this year it’s in the form of a power point slide set and covers:

  • Snomed / Dual Coding
  • Recording Fluad
  • Who needs 9OX4.
  • Health and Social Care workers Flu

Please also note the slides about Health and Social Care workers flu given this is manual data that will not be found by the main seasonal flu extraction. There is an XLS manual log provided for you to use if you wish to but you can always identify your own in house recording mechanism.

Please remember your clinical system supplier performs the GPES extraction based on the coding in your patient records so please also follow any advice you receive from your clinical system supplier on coding during the flu season.

As ever, please get in touch if I can be of further assistance.
