The Radiotherapy chapter was reviewed during 2017 by the CCSD Working Group with input from specialists and hospital groups. The revised chapter was published on 8th March 2018 with a recommended adoption date of 1st May 2018.
The previous Radiotherapy chapter codes have been inactivated and replaced with a new code set following the below logic:
X0007 - X0012 Clinical supervision codes
X6000 - X6099 Service planning codes
X7000 - X7099 Hospital service delivery codes
X9000 - X9049 Supplementary radiotherapy codes
It is intended that planning codes (X6000-X6099) are to be used by both consultants and hospital providers. Delivery codes (X7000-X7099) are to be used by hospital providers only and clinical supervision codes (X0007-X0012) are to be used by consultants only for delivery.
Supplementary codes (X9000 - X9049) should be used in addition to delivery codes (X7000 - X7099) to add further information such as the use of image control or motion management techniques and should not be used alone.
