Please pick codes from within the list above. You do not need to use every code e.g. if locally you do not distinguish between routine and emergency IUD fittings then you could use 6151 ‘IUD fitted’ for both. However please avoid using any codes that are not on the list above for fitting, removal or checking of LARC methods, including avoiding using similar terms eg ‘iud refitted’ (6153).
