Guidance published 7 March 2019
Type 2 codes have been inactivated by EMIS. (Users were told this in the EMIS Web code updates on 8 January 2019.) They no longer appear in the EMIS Web code picking list when searching by code or term and cannot be entered into a patient’s medical record via Add a Code.
However, the codes could still be used if they have been included in a template, so you must check your templates to remove these codes and prevent their use.
