  3. 3. 1.Overview of Clinic Type Services registered in the Directory of Services (DoS) are mapped to ‘clinic types’ and Specialty and Treatment Function, so that referring clinicians using Choose and Book may more easily locate appropriate Services when referring and booking patients. Document NPFIT-EBS-DES-0034.03 - Describing Services Available in Choose and Book v1.5.DOC available to download from has more information on how Services are mapped to clinic types, and how Services are listed in the DoS. This document also includes full information on all aspects of the DoS. An initial list of clinic types was produced by the Early Adopter sites by combining their clinic type categories, and engaging in dialogue with the relevant clinical staff if a ready solution was not identified. This single list below represents the clinic types currently available in the live system, and forms the basis of a national list from which the NHS in England must categorise their services in the Directory of Services. As more adopters prepare for and begin using Choose and Book, new clinic types must be added. A Clinic Type Working Group (or similar) and the Choose and Book National Clinical Reference Panel will review, authorise and ratify new requests and suggested amendments to the national Clinic Type list. Any requests for new clinic types or changes to the clinic type list should be sent on the required form to The Clinic Type ‘Request for Assessment’ form and supporting documentation, including the approval process, are available from the Choose and Book website at: Service definition within the Choose and Book Directory of Services required the service to be defined as a combination of: a) Specialty or Treatment Function b) One or more Clinic Types The Service Definer will be presented with drop-down lists from which to select both Specialty/Treatment Function and Clinic Types. Each service is then given a locally defined name (for further information about the format of locally defined service names see the Service Naming Convention for the Choose and Book Directory of Services document available from the Choose and Book website. Further information about conditions treated, exclusions etc. can then be attributed to each service via Service Specific Guidance which acts as a repository of keywords associated with the service. A Service in CAB may in reality be one or more clinics listed within PAS. A Service is a concept used to allow Service Providers flexibility on how their Services are organised and appear to referring clinicians. For example, a large teaching hospital may have 10 consultants all providing generalist orthopaedics clinics, each with their own diary slots. The teaching hospital may wish to publish these clinics as 10 distinct generalist orthopaedics Services on CAB. Alternatively, the Service Provider may wish to publish them as a single pooled generalist orthopaedics Service. Amalgamating the 10 clinics into a single CAB Service will not only simplify choosing an orthopaedics Service at the hospital (there is 1 rather than 10), but will also allow the hospital the flexibility associated with a pool of consultants, i.e. that the Service can continue to operate even if one of the consultants is on leave. click-here-to-get-the-file2861.doc Page 3 of 17
  4. 4. Table 1 - National Clinic Type list at 18/05/2005/055 Notes: 1. This list is subject to review by the Clinic Types Reference Group and the Choose and Book National Clinical Reference Panel. Version 6 will effectively be frozen until October to allow Local Health Communities to populate their Directory of Services using a static list. During this period, the Choose and Book Team will be carrying out a consultation exercise with Royal Colleges, Specialty Associations and Clinical Professional Associations to review the list. 2. Those entries in bold text are newly added specialties/treatment functions and Clinic Types. It is important to note that the Choose and Book application is required to use the National Standard list of Specialties and Treatment Functions (available in DSCN 26/2003) 3. No Clinic Types have been removed from the previous version of the list. Clinic Types and Specialties/Treatment Functions have been added. 4. The column ‘Keyword Examples/Service Name’ provides examples of key words that may be included as key words in the Service Specific Booking Guidance and/or service names. This is provided purely for illustration and these key words, together with the Clinic Types will be subject to the consultation exercise outlined above over the coming months. Local Health Communities should ensure that local clinicians (in both primary and secondary care) are involved in developing the keywords and service names for local services. 5. The use of the ‘Rapid Access’ Clinic type denotes suspected cancer (2 week wait) referrals and Rapid Access Chest Pain referrals only. These should be further defined by the use of appropriate clinic slots and service names. In those instances where we have received requests relating to services providing speedy access to patients with acute conditions, the Clinic Type ‘Acute Access’ is provided to distinguish between these referrals/bookings and suspected cancer referrals/bookings. 6. There have been efforts to ensure consistency across the Clinic Types in different specialties (e.g. use of the terms ‘Rapid Access’ and ‘general’). 7. Proposed changes to clinic types are indicated in the list below (see footnotes). These changes will not take effect until the autumn. Notification is provided here to allow local health communities to make the necessary adjustments to local service descriptions, clinic mapping, commissioning rules and Service Selection Guidance. There may be other changes that will come as a result of review and consultation. There will be sufficient notice of any further changes. 8. The initial scope of Choose and Book is GP/GDP direct referrals and booking into first outpatient appointments in consultant-led services. A number of health communities have expressed the desire to describe services outside this scope in the Directory of Services (e.g. AHP and nurse-led services, GPwSI services, Clinical Assessment Services). Where this is the case, service definers and commissioners must use the specialties and clinic types within the list below to define these services then provide further clarity about the service in both service name and keywords as well as ensuring that the correct appointment type (e.g. nurse –led, GPwSI-led etc) is attributed to the service from the list of appointment types available within Choose and Book when describing services. 9. All submissions from Local Health Communities requesting Clinic Types relating to AIDS/HIV referrals have been referred to the Chief Medical Officer for advice about publication of these services. Further guidance will be provided when available, via communiqué. 10. Mental Health services Clinic Types will be reviewed in light of further guidance from the Department of Health on Clinical Assessment Services and will be treated as exceptional items for addition as required. Further information will be released via communiqué. As an interim measure, however, we have included a ‘general’ Clinic Type with each of the Mental click-here-to-get-the-file2861.doc Page 4 of 17
