Code indicating diagnosis of chronic liver disease


This codelist was derived by the following method:

  • Read 2 Codelist provided by LSHTM
  • Codes from Quality Outcome Framework (QOF) were examined and relevant liver codes taken
  • Codes from SNOMED were taken by searching for relevant liver terms

These 3 lists were mapped into CTV3 by TPP to create one list. This list was examined by 2 people and the following logic applied (see github issue for more detail):

  • Multi-system genetic disease (such a glycogen storage diseases) excluded as although liver disease can be part of this presentation, it may not progress to include liver disease
  • Inclusion of all chronic viral hepatitis disease
  • Inclusion of signs of cirrhosis such as oesophageal varices
  • Inclusion of liver transplant (recipient only)
