CPRD codes: Severe Mental Illness

The Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD, www.cprd.com) is a large UK database of primary care health records, to which UoB has an institutional site license. CPRD is used for a range of observational primary care research such as epidemiology, pharmacovigilance and health services research. Research studies employing CPRD require the development of diagnostic and treatment code lists (based on the Read and BNF coding systems respectively).

This dataset comprises code lists used in a CPRD analysis of the impact of the UK Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) payment-for-performance system on recording and treatment of cardiovascular risk factors in UK general practice for patients with severe mental illness. Codes are provided for defining severe mental illness within CPRD, as well as a range of cardiovascular risk factors.
