Westhill Consulting CCSD

http://www.ccsd.org.uk/About

The purpose of the CCSD is to:

Establish and maintain a common standard of procedure codes and narratives that reflect current medical practice within the independent healthcare sector by publishing the CCSD Schedule

Establish and maintain industry standard codes for diagnostic tests (ISCs) which were launched in September 2013 to drive further standardisation of coding

Make this standard available to all those working in the sector at a minimal, equitable charge that does not limit adoption or usage

Update the standard in-line with new technologies and changes in medical practice

Two workstreams are responsible for CCSD work:

The CCSD Board acts as a steering committee, providing overall direction and strategy and ensures that the CCSD delivers against its strategic objectives

The CCSD Working Group is responsible for ongoing maintenance of the CCSD Schedule. The Working Group discusses and decides the outcomes of any new procedure amendment requests and other changes to the Schedule
