NCCQ June 2021 Updates - COVID-19, FAQs and User Guide



The NCCQ Examination Board would like to clarify that there will be no questions relating to either the DCS.XXII.5 COVID-19 (U071-U07.7) or Coding Clinic Ref 121 Procedures performed for female pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence in the examination on the 22nd June 2021.

The COVID-19 Standard has been subject to a number of changes over the past 12 months.  Given the potential for further updates to this Standard it was felt that it should be excluded from the NCCQ at this time.

The NCCQ Board is composed of representatives from NHS Digital, Iechyd a Gofal Digidol Cymru (Digital Health and Care Wales), Health and Social Care Northern Ireland and IHRIM.
