  • Improvement to Query Resolution Database

    Published: November 2018

    In our Service Improvement Plan, we committed to improving the Query Resolution Database by identifying changes and deletions in the database.

    You will now see an additional column entitled 'status'. This column will only be populated when a resolution has been removed from the database or replaced with a new UID.

  • Please take part in the public consultation on the NHS Digital, Data and Technology Standards Framework

    Published: November 2018

    On October 17th, Secretary of State Matt Hancock published his vision for The Future of Healthcare. The vision emphasises the importance of technology and in particular the importance of technical standards that will help the NHS and social care to benefit from the potential of modern technology. The vision is out for consultation and people can provide feedback on it via this questionnaire.

    Alongside the vision, we have also published two important documents, which we are keen to get your feedback on. These documents are:

    1. The NHS Digital, Data and Technology Standards Framework


    1. The Clinical Information Standards Specification 

    You can read and comment upon both documents on our dedicated consultation platform. The documents are in a format which allows you to comment publicly, but anonymously, so that everyone can see what each other is saying. Our hope is that this will help to avoid duplication, while also prompting thoughts and helping themes to emerge. There is also a short questionnaire on the site which allows you to provide feedback privately. The documents cover standards that are very important to the Delen community, including SNOMED CT, dm+d, ICD and OPCS-4 so it is essential that we get as much feedback as possible.

    We very much look forward to reading your responses, which will be used to update the documents and inform our plans.
