Kettering General Hospital Foundation Trust: Clinical Coding Transformation Programme - Getting it right for outpatients, our staff and our trust

The Clinical Coding team are vitally important for Kettering as clinically coded data forms the bedrock of information they have on their patients.

The trust is on a journey to take this department from ‘lost and unloved’ to the ‘superheroes’ of the organisation. The Clinical Coding transformation programme put the clinical coding team at the heart of the changes.

This programme is one of the trust’s proudest success stories because improving the accuracy of clinical coding benefits staff, the trust and their patients.
