HTM 05-02 2105
« on: October 07, 2015, 09:51:01 AM »
Recent Update - bit of a technical update apparently but here it is

Any idea why this 2015 standard references out of date BS and SI, (CDM BS 7273).  Also why does it start with, "This 2014 edition...."

Probably for the same reason that it had to be updated in the first place.  The original  was written in a hurry so as to meet a financial deadline.  It should have been a complete rewrite to reflect the current models of care and patient profiles.  DH & Capita wanted it written in less than 6 months which left no time for research into the things we still don't know, engagement with those that do know some of the things we don't, or a full consultation.  As a result, I refused to frilly about the edges of the existing document whilst Capita was getting paid for a full rewrite, and hence another author was involved in the document.  The 2014 version of HTM 05-02 was riddled with errors, even referencing within the document was incorrect.  The update was supposed to correct these errors, but..... :-X
