CODE 1     Patient has no previous admission(s) or service contact(s) for the specialised treatment now being provided

Use this code for admitted patients, whose only prior specialised treatment contact was the service contact that referred the patient for admission.

CODES 2-4 These codes include patients who have been seen at any time in the past within the speciality within which the patient is currently being treated (mental health or palliative care), regardless of whether it was part of the current episode or a previous admission/service contact many years in the past. Use these codes regardless of whether the previous treatment was provided within the service in which the person is now being treated, or another equivalent specialised service (either institutional or community-based).

CODE 2     Patient has previous hospital admission(s) but no service contact(s) for the specialised treatment now being provided

CODE 3     Patient has previous service contact(s) but no hospital admission(s) for the specialised treatment now being provided

CODE 4     Patient has both previous hospital admission(s) and service contact(s) for the specialised treatment now being provided
