Who is responsible for coding?

SHL will record and submit data to PHE which relate to completed screens, and in the case of chlamydia a final diagnosis. It is anticipated that as other infections will be confirmed and managed in a clinic that these diagnoses would be reported by

the clinic after the formal diagnosis has been made. Clinics will need to reinforce the use of X to the codes (for example BOX, C4RX). We are in talks with the PHE GUMCAD team around improving data across services and will provide more information in due course.
