Description

This codelists supports analysis of records of people who may reside in a nursing or care home. NHS England requires primary care networks (PCNs) to maintain this list as part their contract.

Methodology

NHS England has issued a Primary Care Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service to support improved health outcomes for those living in care or nursing homes. As part of this participating general practices/PCNs must maintain a coded list of patients on their list who reside in a care home. NHS England specifies in clause 9.7.7 of the contract that only two codes may be used for this purpose.
