Electronic Staff Record Coding

The NHS Electronic Staff Record (ESR) - Coding of staff working within Medical Illustration.

Some of you may already have been asked by your Human Resources Department to fill in ESR documentation for those that work in Medical Illustration. IMI has received a number of enquiries seeking advice on this matter and in the absence of nationally agreed standards from the Department of Health IMI has drafted some recommendations.

 Obviously it is difficult to capture every possibility however these recommendations offer some guidance for you to tailor to your own department. The important information is the ‘Staff Group’, ‘Role’ and ‘U code’. The Department is Trust specific and the Job Title is person specific, as you will be aware we have debated ‘what do we call ourselves’ on numerous occasions and the variety is quite wide although there is a running theme.
