SNOMED CT

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

SNOMED CT® is the clinical terminology approved as an Information Standard.

Requirements for utilising SNOMED CT® are stated within the National Information Board document "A Framework for Action" and SNOMED CT® can be downloaded from Technology Reference Data Update Distribution (TRUD).

SNOMED CT® provides the clinical language that facilitates electronic communication between healthcare professionals in clear and unambiguous terms, and can be used to code, retrieve and analyse clinical data.

SNOMED CT® is comprehensive and provides clinical terms for all healthcare professions. Applications often use subsets of SNOMED CT®, known as SNOMED CT Refsets, that have been developed to support specific requirements. The NHS Data Model and Dictionary references SNOMED CT Refsets to support data reporting for specific data items.

SNOMED CT® has been distributed in Release Format 2 (RF2) since 1 April 2018. SNOMED CT® contains SNOMED CT Refsets referenced by refset ID, which are listed in the Data Dictionary for Care (DD4C).

SNOMED CT® is managed and maintained internationally by SNOMED International and in the UK by NHS Digital.

National and International arrangements have been established to ensure there is adequate and relevant governance of SNOMED CT®, to ensure it meets the needs of healthcare in the respective jurisdictions.

Note: previous versions of SNOMED (including SNOMED RT and SNOMED 3) ceased to be licensed after April 2017 other than for historical content.

Mapping tables and guidance to enable historical data previously captured using a previous version of SNOMED, can be found on the Technology Reference Data Update Distribution (TRUD) at: SNOMED Antecedent Versions Data Migration.

The ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY is removed from the WAITING LIST when the PATIENT is admitted or removed for other specified reasons.

MAIN SPECIALTY CODE

Change to Attribute: Changed Description

A unique code identifying each MAIN SPECIALTY designated by Royal Colleges. This is the same as the NHS OCCUPATION CODES describing specialties.

Specialties are divisions of clinical work which may be defined by body systems (dermatology), age (paediatrics), clinical technology (nuclear medicine), clinical function (rheumatology), group of diseases (oncology) or combinations of these factors. Only Specialty titles recognised by the Royal Colleges and Faculties should be used. This list is maintained by the General and Specialist Medical Practice (Education, Training and Qualifications) Order 2003 and European Primary and Specialist Dental Qualifications Regulations 1998.

Each CONSULTANT should be assigned a MAIN SPECIALTY by the ORGANISATION to which the CONSULTANT is contracted. For physicians and surgeons with a generalist component to their work, the MAIN SPECIALTY should be general medicine or general surgery. The hallmark of a general physician or general surgeon is the continued care of unselected emergency referrals. The MAIN SPECIALTY is specific to a Health Care Provider. If, for example, a CONSULTANT physician working in two Health Care Providers has a generalist component to the work in one and not the other, general medicine is only assigned as the MAIN SPECIALTY in the former case. CONSULTANTS in general medicine or general surgery may also have specialist interests and these should be recorded as well as the MAIN SPECIALTY.

The initial source of the information should be the designation on the CONSULTANT's contract. This should be checked periodically against the work a CONSULTANT is actually doing so that the statistics can relate to a CONSULTANT's current type of work.

The MAIN SPECIALTY only should be used for the purpose of producing Specialty costing statistics and for Workforce statistics where links with ACTIVITY and finance are required. Other specialist interests of CONSULTANTS may be recorded for workforce planning purposes.

This will be used to indicate the skill level of medical and dental employees.

Pseudo MAIN SPECIALTY CODES should be used in Commissioning Data Set messages for lead CARE PROFESSIONALS other than CONSULTANT medical and dental staff e.g. 560, 950 and 960.

The MAIN SPECIALTY CODE for GENERAL PRACTITIONERS is General Medical Practice or General Dental Practice.

Joint Consultant Clinic ACTIVITY should be recorded against the MAIN SPECIALTY CODE of the CONSULTANT managing the clinic.

For further information, contact NHS Digital by email at: enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk with the subject "Main Specialty and Treatment Function Codes".

Further information on the groupings and each MAIN SPECIALTY CODE is provided at: Main Specialty and Treatment Function Codes Table.
