Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
To provide clarity of the type of consent that has been granted (ie whether explicit, best interest decision, lasting Power of Attorney consent) and where consent has been withdrawn. By recording where a best interest decision or Lasting Power of Attorney has been made for the record, professionals are alerted of potential mental capacity issues. The National End of Life Care Intelligence Network, hosted by Public Health England, has undertaken widespread consultation and is in the process of updating SCCI1580 following formal withdrawal of support for the Liverpool Care Pathway. The related message specification and value sets have been updated and a number of subsets have been created to support this requirement. Many of them will be useful for other purposes and thus where wider utility is expected the names do not reference “end of life care”.
