These should be used to record the cause of death for analysis by the UKRR, SRR and ERA. In order for the data to be comparable across countries it needs to be coded in using the EDTA code lists.

Changes and additions that are made to a patient’s record after death (such as late loading of test results) should also be sent to the UKRDC.
