Where it appears that two codes are equally applicable, the nearest code to 01 'Another HEI in UK' should be used.

The previous employment should indicate the nature of employment for staff before the date returned in Person.DATEFHEI.

It is expected that once the member of staff has entered employment with the HEI the code returned in this field will remain the same until they leave the HEI.

Where a break in continuous service occurs and an individual has not been employed elsewhere during the break, code 21 'Not in regular employment' must be returned in this field and the code for the current institution returned in Person.PREVHEI.

Code 05 'Research institution in the UK' and code 06 'Research institution overseas' can only be used where Person.DATEFHEI is before 2012-08-01.

Code 09 'NHS/General medical or General dental practice in UK' should be used where the nature of employment is or was within the NHS, in the broadest sense. This should include employment in an NHS body such as a Trust or Primary Care Trust and should also include employment in General medical or General dental practice. Even where other codes apply (for example General practitioners who consider themselves self-employed), this code should be used.
