Revised versions of the HTA’s Codes of Practice

Submitted by Hannah Smith on Fri, 06/30/2023 - 13:30

We've published updated versions of our Codes of Practice (except Code F, Part two: Deceased organ and tissue donation which was published on 1 June 2023). 

Minor changes have been made to the Codes of Practice to ensure they accurately reflect recent legislative changes and policy updates – such as the introduction of Deemed Consent in Northern Ireland – and include updated references and other minor changes (such as ensuring consistent terms are used). 

This has been issued under a new set of legal Directions that establishments must follow. Directions 003/2023 comes into effect on 30 June 2023. 

The revised Codes of Practice have been through an internal and external review process, including engagement with colleagues in the Devolved Administrations and at the Department of Health and Social Care.
