Transition to SNOMED CT


Microtest is working closely with NHS Digital regarding the transition to SNOMED CT. NHS Digital has announced a nationwide revision to the timings originally planned for this project, as follows:

In order to minimise disruption at year-end, SNOMED CT will be deployed in phases across general practice from April 2018.

The introduction of SNOMED CT, which replaces Read/CTV 3 Codes, is being co-ordinated in primary care by NHS Digital, working closely with clinical system suppliers to support a smooth transition.

The first phase of deployment will start with approximately 20 pilot sites, including all of the principal clinical supplier systems, after year-end business activities are completed.

For further information on progress, visit the NHS Digital website.

Microtest will inform practices of deployment plans.
