  • Withdrawal of the NHS dm+d (dictionary of medicines and devices) realm language reference set

    Published: October 2019

    Dear colleague,

    NHS Digital intends to withdraw the NHS dm+d (dictionary of medicines and devices) realm language reference set in April 2020:

    • 999000671000001103 |National Health Service dictionary of medicines and devices realm language reference set (foundation metadata concept)|

    The Pharmacy Terminology Team at NHS Digital believe this language reference set no longer serves a useful purpose and has been fully superseded by the NHS realm language reference set (pharmacy part):

    • 999000691000001104 |National Health Service realm language reference set (pharmacy part) (foundation metadata concept)|

    In the absence of any substantive objections this change will be actioned in the April 2020 SNOMED CT UK Drug Extension data.

    Please email any comments to information.standards@nhs.net by the end of Friday 28 February 2020.

    Kind regards
