Emergency Care Data Set (ECDS) SNOMED request form

Before you start

This form is to specifically request new ECDS SNOMED codes or request an amendment to existing ECDS SNOMED codes.

Do not use this form to submit general ECDS queries and any non-code related queries. General queries should be emailed to: [email protected].

Before submitting any requests using the form

Please read and note the following:

  • if you are submitting a suggestion for a new code such as a diagnosis, please review the latest ECDS ETOS (Enhanced Technical Output Specification) available from the ECDS guidance web pages, to check if a code already exists
  • you can also access previous requests through the ECDS query log. Before you submit a request, please use this tool to establish if a similar query has been previously received and reviewed
  • if there is a generic code which already covers the diagnosis, you may want to use this higher-level code before submitting a detailed diagnosis description
  • requests will be logged and then reviewed by the ECDS Technical Committee, who meet regularly - the Technical Committee will decide whether to include or decline the request
  • requests must be made on the basis of one code per submitted form (requests for multiple codes in the same form will be rejected)
  • the information submitted in the below form may be published in the ECDS query log on the ECDS Forum and/or NHS England ECDS web pages
