Pathology and Diagnostics news

Latest information on COVID-19 and Pathology


In light of the current pandemic, NHS Digital resource has been focused on providing care-critical COVID-19 content for the SNOMED CT release and we are working on a small number of SNOMED CT concepts to support test requesting and reporting

NHSX and NHS Digital are exploring with a number of organisations how to enable tests requests and associated results to flow across NHS organisations with standard codes and descriptions.  We expect to release these national descriptions later this month. In the interim labs should continue to flow the information using their own local descriptions; this activity will also ensure these local descriptions can be linked to the national descriptions following publication.
